Silver Strand Beach to La Janella Park Professional Review and Guide
"Silver Strand Beach is a level, white sand beach that fronts a small pocket community in Oxnard. The beach stretches one mile from the mouth of Channel Islands Harbor to Point Hueneme, at the mouth of Port Hueneme Harbor. La Janelle Park sits on Point Hueneme at the south end of the sandy beach. The park borders the Port Hueneme Naval Construction Battalion Center, which nearly surrounds Port Hueneme Harbor. This hike strolls along the oceanfront from Channel Islands Harbor to La Janelle Park. In April, 1970, the S.S. La Jenelle, a 12,000-ton pleasure ship, ran aground in a storm. The wreck, just offshore of Point Hueneme, was filled with rocks and converted into a fishing jetty. The park and offshore area is now a popular fishing and surfing spot."
