What a waste of amazing real estate. We went for the shopping and restaurants but all we found was a disgusting food court. Maybe we were missing something but we drove all around.

Ventura Harbor is just a few miles north, with its relative glitz, lots of shops and tourists come because it is close to the freeway. But Channel Islands Harbor is truly a sailor's harbor. The harbor entrance (that's from the ocean for you landlubbers) is almost always easy, at least from the South end. Ventura's entrance is known for it's... More

The harbor has a natural beauty, including view of the Channel Islands most days. On the harbor drive side (south, western side) you will find Kayak rentals, marina, yacht clubs and some restaurants. Also maritime museum is well worth the visit While the west side is very nice. I had to downgrade overall rating for the bad conditions on the... More

Keep a J 24 here and this is a low-key, nicely protected harbor for a sailing purposes. Nearest Harbor to Malibu and Ventura Harbor is just a short distance to the North.

Really neat to walk around. On Sunday's there is a really COOL Farmers Market ... loads of fresh veggies and fruits - and wonderful plants for the garden and inside the home. At great prices. It's a lovely setting, people there walking their dogs, quiet, friendly. We really enjoyed being there.

I attended a party at the clubhouse. It was a large area; accommodated 100 people. It was well decorated and provided adequate seating.

It used to be my local bar in the area 30 odd years ago, it has the same old vibe today as it did then. Good food and entertainment, the band playing on this particular night was far too loud, so nothing new there, apart from older ear drums being a little more sensitive, or maybe I was cold sober!

Not much happening here. We tried a cupcake but it wasn't that good :( Maybe the place is popping on the weekends. We'll come back another time.

Beautiful harbor and a nice place to stroll with a few good restaurants, but not much else. When compared to many harbor's that I have been to, this is a great disappointment - and I live here. They do have events that are worth attending, check the schedule to see when any might be occuring - but otherwise not a... More
