We've walked a few beaches in our travels, but none as impressive as Oxnard Shores! Loved it! The huge expanse of beach was easy to walk and very clean. Go there!

I love going to Oxnard state beach because it’s less crowded and much nicer beach compared to Venice, Malibu, Huntington, etc... It’s like going to a private beach without having to pay for entrance and parking.

Nice big beach. No crowds. Nice sand and lifeguards. Bathrooms at some locations. Free parking. No seaweed! Only downfall is no outdoor showers to wash off and strong undercurrent in ocean. Would come again for sure!

What kind of open ended question is that? If you want to do it literally on the public beach without getting too elaborate, than my thought is that the cost would be zero for the use of the public beach. If you want to do it... More
