The beautiful Oxnard California is characterized by over 20 miles of coastline divided up into various beaches, including Silver Strand Beach. Silver Strand Beach gets its name from the 1.6-mile stretch of silvery, white sand beach that gleams in the sunlight. If you're in the Oxnard neighborhood with your pooch, Silver Stand Beach is the perfect place to both start and end your day.
Walking along the luscious, soft sandy beach in the morning with your pup is a great way to catch a glimpse of the sunrise while attending to the sounds of wildlife surrounding you. Not to mention the silky, white-sanded beach is the perfect place for you and your pooch to take a break and have a small morning picnic before continuing on your walk.
Despite its size, Silver Strand Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Oxnard. It's growing surf culture and diverse marine wildlife always makes visiting the beach more interesting. It's likely you and your pooch will catch a glimpse of some form of marine life during your stroll as the beach is known for being home to jellyfish, dolphins, and seals.
If you decide to venture along the north end of Silver Strand Beach, you will find a viewing platform looking out into the Chanel Islands Harbor. Here, you and your pooch can bask in the sun while taking in the serene sights of ships leaving and entering the harbor.
The only thing to keep in mind while visiting the beach with your pooch is that they are to remain on their leash at all times, even when in the water. Cleaning up after your pup is also mandatory, so always having poop bags on hand is a must! Lastly, don't forget to take advantage of the outdoor showers by rinsing the salt water off your pooch after they take a dip so their skin does not get irritated.
Ending off your day with a second walk along the beach will guarantee you and your pooch picturesque sunsets over the ocean with a cool breeze at your back. Although the beach is only open to you and your four-legged friend before 8:00 am and after 5:00 pm, it's still a relaxing and unforgettable opportunity you don't want to miss out on.
