On November 22, I visited the Hueneme Beach Park. It’s a sandy beach with some dunes, a park, a small restaurant, and more. There were a couple of people out enjoying the beach on a hot day in November. This beach is my favorite places to go to. I have been to the Hueneme Beach Park on multiple occasions. There are plenty of recreational activities that can be done here.
On the beach there are a couple of barbecue stations, a pier where some fishing can be done, two near by parks, and the restaurant Surfside Seafood. Upon further inspection there was quite a bit of trash near the barbecue stations. There was charcoal, some styrofoam and some plastics sticking out in the sand. I picked up some of the trash around the stations but there was a more charcoal than anything there. My favorite thing about this beach though must be the parks. The park on the beach has a memorial to Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which a large sundial with dolphins at the base and the names of those who lost their life. Near by is a small swing set which was occupied for a but while I was there by a family. People around were just relaxing and fishing that day. At the end of the pier, there was a group of people fishing.
The beach is surrounded by the military base, apartments, and a power plant. Near the base there is a wall of rock plies lined up with a trail next to it. The beach had different sections to it such as the surf zone, then the berm which then rose to the dunes. There are some small dunes growing, mostly near the parking lot. The vegetation and wildlife on the beach was low, not including the palm trees and grass at the park.
