Location: Corner of Harbor Boulevard and 5th Street, Oxnard
Description: This is 94 acres of undeveloped beachfront land that is located south of Reliant Energy's Mandalay Generating Station. The natural sand dunes and the wetlands ecosystem are recognized for their important natural value. Two threatened species of birds nest on the sand at this beautiful south facing beach, the Snowy Plover and the Least Tern. This is a passive, natural open space park with no support facilities. The purpose of Mandalay State Beach is to make the sandy ocean beach and adjacent coastal dunes available for public day use without impairing the scenic or natural integrity of the site. The beach is managed for its protection and perpetuation by the County of Ventura on behalf of the California State Parks Department.
