Know Before You Go
Parking is very hard to find, as the park lies at the end of a residential neighborhood. Closest road is the junction where Ocean Drive turns left and becomes Sawtelle Avenue.
Outside of street parking, there is beach access from the street, and a small concrete lot by the park. This access is behind a small yellow gate at the end of Ocean Drive, to the right.
Due to concrete being present just below the surface of the sand in some areas, going barefoot is not advised. This rule also definitely applies to the rusty metal.
Port Hueneme is a restricted access harbor, and trespassing is forbidden. The park is located on it's border, so no wandering.
Nearby is the Beachcomber Tavern, a small bar. It is unusual for any sort of business to be holed up in a small, high-rent beach neighborhood.
On Google Maps, several areas within Silver Strand and Port Hueneme have suffered from strange map rendering issues in the Earth function, appearing as giant sinkholes with 3D structures rendered on top of the holes.
Additionally, Google Maps places La Jenelle Park within Port Hueneme, which is incorrect. La Jenelle Park consists of the extended breakwater, wreckage, a plaque, the murals, and the lot.
The breakwater also serves as a fishing spot.
In clear weather conditions, the Channel Islands and several oil rigs are visible from the beach.
