The Oxnard coastline originally was home to the Chumash Indians who lived there and often visited nearby offshore islands. In later years, Spaniards hunted teal and mallard in the cattail marshes.
In the late 1800s, Thomas Bard built a shipping wharf at neighboring Port Hueneme and the area's housing market began. Hollywood Beach was one of three subdivisions and by 1927, more than 100 beach cottages were built.
When filmmakers returned to Hollywood soundstages, the area's focus returned to recreation including hunting and boating. This activity stimulated interest in Oxnard's beaches once again; real estate developers launched an aggressive marketing campaign focusing on the area's investment values and rich recreational opportunities. In 1956 the Bards donated 112 acres of prime coastal land for such use.
In 1960 the Army Corp. of engineers began construction of the Channel Islands Harbor. Several streets were lost to make way for the new harbor. Today, Hollywood Beach lies on the west side of the harbor and Hollywood by the Sea and Silver strand Beach flank the east.
Redevelopment is constant on this rare coastal land. For a taste of nostalgia, look for "Casa Valentino" or "grandma's cabins" on Ocean Boulevard.
Since the 1920s Hollywood stars have sought refuge at this gorgeous beach. Come see why and discover one of southern California's best-kept secrets!
