Harbor Cove Beach (Mother’s Beach)

Beautiful views of the entire Ventura coastline and hills, small lapping waves, and windblown sand dunes are just a few things that attract local families to Harbor Cove Beach. Coined as one of the safest beaches in Ventura, locals often refer to this protected shoreline as, “MOther’s Beach.” Located at the west end of Spinnaker Drive, across the street from the Channel Islands National Park Visitor’s Center, Harbor Cove Beach serves as the perfect spot for waterfront activities such as kayaking, flying kites, and watching the boats go in and out of the harbor. Amenities include restrooms and showers. Food available across the street at Harbor Cove Cafe. Lifeguard service available from Memorial Day – Labor Day weekend, courtesy of Ventura Port District. Home of the Hokuloa Outrigger Canoe Club.

Volleyball Courts

Volleyball Courts have been placed at Harbor Cove Beach by the Rincon Volleyball Club. Under their agreement, the courts are available to the public when not being used by the club. 


Surfer’s Knoll Beach

With its amazing views of the coastline and Channel Islands, Surfer’s Knoll Beach serves as a wonderful sanctuary to relax, indulge, play, refresh, and explore. Located on Spinnaker Drive across the street from the Ventura Harbor Village, Surfer’s Snoll Beach has a great surf break at the Santa Clara River Mouth. Fun for all includes sunbathing, sea glass hunting, long walks towards the bird sanctuary along the beach. Swimming, unless an expert surfer, is not recommended due to hazardous and dangerous rip tides from Surfer’s Knoll all the way to Harbor Cove Beach.
