San Buenaventura Beach, Ventura California

Description

San Buenavantura Beach is nice in the spring when there are wildflowers along the bikepath and on the dunes. It's a great place for kids to play imaginative games in the dunes. There is a grassy area in a valley set back from the beach where there are picnic tables, shady trees, and a ton of palm trees. The bikepath is popular and looks fun, and the beachhouses on San Pedro Street are colorful and hip. This beach is often cold and windy so come with a jacket.
