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!

Where else can you have a big beautiful grass park to have a special party our BBQ on a beach with wheelchair access, one of the largest stretches of sand with dunes and a walking path for you and your furry kid? The Bomb!

Next to Embassy Suites and a very nice beach. Great for picnicking and swimming. If you get hungry or want a stiff drink the Embassy Suites has a bar and restaurant. Clean restrooms and picnic tables. There is a charge for parking.

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
