“state beach at San Buenaventura”
Moderate temperatures help make Emma Wood State Beach popular for swimming, surfing and fishing. Catches include perch, bass, cabezon and corbina. The Ventura River estuary is at the mouth of the Ventura River at the southeast end of the park. It attracts a variety of wildlife including raccoons, songbirds and great blue herons. Dolphins are occasionally seen just offshore. The park also features the crumbling ruins of a World War II coastal artillery site. The offshore Channel Islands can be seen from the beach. Emma Wood State Beach offers family camping for self-contained vehicles only and group camping is available at Ventura River Group Camp.
While we were staying overnight in Ventura, we decided to spend our Saturday morning at Emma Wood State Beach.
The weather was very nice and the sun was so hot you could not resist getting into the water.
The beach was full of people swimming and surfers riding the tall waves.
We didn't allow the kids get very far away into the water due to the height of the waves but we played right at the shore like the other families.
Great escape and the water is so clear and refreshing!
