Welcome to Silver Strand Beach
Iconic beach town with down-to-earth sensibilities
Named for the silver screen, Silver Strand Beach is the southernmost beach in Oxnard. Boasting gorgeous white sand and a colorful neighborhood of stunning homes, this classic beach town is a slice of paradise. Walkability, world-famous surfing, and a warm, community-centric feel make this family-friendly place an ideal home.
Silver Strand was developed in the 1920s, with at least 100 beach cottages built by 1927. Here you’ll find some of those original structures, as well as Spanish-style homes, modern beach houses with floor-to-ceiling glass, to see that incredible ocean view, and classic beach bungalows.
Often known as The Strand, this beach community is credited with a robust musical history, and it’s no surprise that people find this stunning beach community inspiring. Today, the sandy beach and incredible surfing call to those looking for a laid-back lifestyle within driving distance to Los Angeles. Silver Strand Beach real estate is luxurious, spacious, and close to the beach.

Silver Strand Beach was made for the light-hearted, low-key, sand-in-your-toes type of resident, and it offers its beachgoers world-class surf, fishing, kayaking, a mild climate, and a family-friendly atmosphere. You can enjoy long walks on the white sandy beaches, camping, swimming, surfing, boating, water-skiing, volleyball, and picnicking. This classic beach town loves its pups, and you’ll often find residents out walking or jogging with their canine pals.
Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
In a low-key place like Silver Strand, you’ll find excellent dining and the finest, freshest ingredients, but — don’t worry — you can leave the tux and high heels at home. This casual beach town welcomes sandy feet and that straight-from-the-water look.
You’ve just spent the day at the beach, surfing, sunbathing, settling down on the white sand, and feeling the sun on your skin, and now… you’re hungry. Where do you go? Quincy Street
, of course! The family-owned bistro has been a Silver Strand favorite since 1985 and serves the freshest seafood, burgers, barbeque, and cocktails from a full bar. Pepe’s
, another local favorite, dishes up classic Mexican fare and burgers in a casual cafe setting, while The Strandwich
is a casual breakfast and lunch spot serving, you guessed it, sandwiches.
You know how it goes — you think you’ve packed everything you need for a day at the beach, but once you get there, you realize you need a bag of chips or a cold drink or maybe a water gun. This is when you head to the infamous Corner Store
, the Strand’s kitschy, divey convenience store.
