Across the channel south of Hollywood Beach is another beach community, Silverstrand Beach, known for great surfing and friendly neighbors. . Located between the ocean entrance to Channel Islands Harbor and the border of the Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme, there is only one entrance into this neighborhood, making it private, quiet, and exclusive. It has a mile-long beach capped by north and south jetties. This uncrowded, wide, sandy beach lined with new and old beachfront homes. As with most of the Oxnard beach communities, any non-beachside home is a walk’s distance to the sand; many of the homes have ocean views or views of Channel Islands Harbor, where there’s great shopping, dining, boating, island tours, and fun events. The neighborhood itself has a few small restaurants and a local pub with occasional live music. The kids can enjoy Kiddie Beach Park along the boardwalk on the harbor side. Residents at Silverstrand have a convenient view of the annual 4th of July fireworks in the Harbor as well as a year-round vista of the Channel Islands. When you live at Silverstrand, you can wake up to a morning stroll on the beach, welcoming the sunrise with your favorite cup of coffee or lull yourself to sleep at night with the sound of the crashing waves. In between, spend the afternoon watching the dolphins play right off the shore or the surfers perfect their skills. There’s even a volleyball court nearby. That’s the life! Homes in Silverstrand Beach range from $1,000,000 to $4,000,000 on the sand and $500,000 to $1.5m off-beach.
