About Surfers Point Beach in Ventura, California

Surfers Point Beach at Seaside Park in Ventura begins west of the Ventura Pier and follows the Promenade to the Ventura River Estuary. A lagoon forms where the Ventura River backs up behind the beach which makes this a great birding location.

The point faces south so waves coming from the west curl around it making right hand waves that roll in consistently. Surfers will start at various spots and ride these waves toward the pier. Kiteboarders and windsurfers put on a show in the area just west of the point when the wind is up.

West of the point is Emma Wood State Beach. East of the point is Seaside Park and the Promenade, a paved pathway that connects Surfers Point to the pier. The Omer Rains Bike Trail continues from the Promenade and goes in both directions along the shore.

Between the point and the pier the beach has eroded away so if the tide is up you won’t find sand there and if the tide is out the beach will be rocky.

Surfers Point has a couple large parking lots behind the beach. To get there, turn onto Figueroa Street from Harbor Boulevard at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.
