Hollywood Beach

Once home to Clark “King of Hollywood” Gable, this popular stretch of sand is lined with unique beachfront mansions, and offers a spectacular view of the colorful sunsets.

Oxnard Beach Park

Take a break from your e-bike adventure to admire the colorful kites that dot the sky over this sprawling meadow. Adjacent to the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort, the park has an excellent view of the Channel Islands National Park and the Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary.

Channel Islands Yacht Club

The Channel Islands Yacht Club has offered activities, dining and events for over 60 years. While you ride by the marina on your e-bike, keep an eye out for members racing sailboats through the Channel Islands Harbor!

La Jenelle Park

This definitely isn’t your typical beachside park! La Jenelle, the luxury ocean liner that met its demise in 1970 when a storm damaged the ship beyond repair, remains to this day in the form of large, jagged pieces poking out of the sand and water that serve as a breakwater for the port!

Fishermans' Wharf

Built and decorated as a delightful nod to the famous San Francisco neighborhood, Fishermans’ Wharf at the Channel Islands Harbor has been a peaceful spot to unwind and watch the boats since the 1970’s.

The Scarlett Belle

Catch a glimpse of this classic riverboat as it transports wedding guests and other party goers across the harbor, equipped with a paddlewheel, multiple dance flours, and sophisticated décor.
