Seaward Avenue and the Seven Jetties
Print Leave a comment
Seaward avenue is a beachy area of shops and cafes on a palm-lined street. It leads down to a sandy beach where you can walk all the way to Ventura Pier! People come here on the weekends to take long strolls or let their dogs run bouncily around. Kids enjoy exploring at the base of the jetties where there are bits of crab shell and other fun finds. The sand here is good for digging pits or laying out a huge blanket and relaxing. If you're brave you can swim in the frosty waters. The wind coming off the ocean is cold so wear a jacket!
After your walk, you can warm up with a cup of coffee at Full of Beans Coffee House, or enjoy a meal at one of the eateries. There's an Italian Restaurant, a Fish and Chips place, and a burger joint with hawaiian grass-shack umbrellas outside. Have fun!

From the 101 Freeway, take the Seaward exit and head towards the ocean. Turn left on Harbor Blvd. Turn right onto Seaward Avenue. Park along the road. Bring quarters!

Overall Visitor Rating:
|For a laid back vacation, this is the place to go in California. Nice beaches, good weather, except for the occasional foggy morning, good prices on hotels and food. Ventura doesn't have the best nightlife, that's for sure, but these are some of the best beaches in the state|
