Solimar Beach is the first gated beach community you’ll see as you travel just north of Ventura, with approximately 1.12 miles of coastline. Solimar Beach Colony has some beautiful custom oceanfront homes, as well as smaller, older beach cottages. Most of the 60 homes are on the beach, making it ideal for families to keep an eye on the kids while lounging on the deck. Since these Solimar Beach homes line the beach and there are no other homes’ views to block, there is no height restriction on two-story homes. Solimar Beach has its own tennis courts, lots of parking, a children’s play area and a community garden. This southwest-facing beach, looking out toward Anacapa Island, is a great beach for swimming, surfing and fishing. Plus, the beach has more dry sand on which to stroll than the other beaches in this area. If you’re not up for walking on the beach, what could be better than sitting on your deck, enjoying the sunset over the Pacific with the Channel Islands in the background? Since Solimar Beach is the closest to Ventura of these northern coastal neighborhoods, it’s an easy drive to downtown shopping and dining and convenient for important medical appointments and errand runs. Homes in Solimar Beach Colony range in price from $4m to $8m and above.
