Happening on Hueneme Beach

Surfing and Kitesurfing

Hueneme Beach is popular with the locals who enjoy the consistent beach and jetty break year-round. Offshore winds from the east help form good waves. Most consider the swells from the west northwest to create the best conditions. Rip tides and pollution are both concerns to anyone going in the water. Kitesurfers like to steady winds and the broad beach which makes setting up and launching convenient.

Caution: Check with rangers or lifeguards that conditions are safe for your planned activities.

Port Hueneme Pier

The Port Hueneme Pier began in 1956 as a 650-foot wharf, but expansion of the beach area left the pier high and dry. In 1968 the City of Port Hueneme removed some of the original pier and added a new section, extending it to its present 1,250 foot length. Over the years storm damage has changed the configuration of the pier slightly.

The pier is most popular with anglers, but walkers and sight-seers enjoy the stroll out to the end and back. It is one of the few piers that allows cyclers to ride out their lengths.

At the end of the pier you are standing over about 20 feet of water and a sandy bottom. Fishing is good for surfperch, blackperch, halibut, queenfish, white croaker, guitarfish, and thornbacks.

The pier is open 24 hours a day. Facilities include restrooms, fish cleaning stations, lights, and benches. Bait and tackle can be purchased from the Surfside Seafood Restaurant.

Point Hueneme Lighthouse

Point Hueneme Lighthouse stands at the entrance to Port Hueneme, only a short walk for Hueneme Beach.

On the 3rd Saturday of each month (February through October), the United State Coast Guard Aids to Navigation Team Los Angeles and the Coast Guard Auxiliary join to open Point Hueneme Lighthouse to visitors. It is open from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Admission is free. Reach the lighthouse by walking from Hueneme Beach ½ mile along the promenade to the lighthouse gate.



Ocean Safety

California State Parks and Recreation cautions that "large surf, cold water temperatures, backwash, sudden drop-offs, pounding shorebreak, and dangerous rip currents can turn what seem like safe activities such as playing near the surf line, wading, or climbing on rock outcroppings, deadly."
