Lovely area to relax and wander in the sun enjoying the views and vibe. Loved watching the wind surfers and paddle boarders from the pier as well as seals basking in the sun. Enjoyable pm in Ventura.

Nice place to visit. There is a state park entrance and a $10 fee to get in if you want to park. Worth the fee if you're going to hang out at the beach for a day.

My husband and I grabbed a beer and walked out on the Ventura Pier. It's a grand old pier!!! The boards are sturdy and HUGE. American flags fly along one side of the pier. Fishermen and sightseers alike enjoy the pier. The views are spectacular...More
