- Point Mugu State Park, located in the Santa Monica Mountains, features five miles of ocean shoreline, with rocky bluffs, sandy beaches, sand dunes, rugged hills and uplands, two major river canyons and wide grassy valleys dotted with sycamores, oaks and a few native walnuts. The 13,300-acre park includes the jagged pinnacles of the Boney Mountains State Wilderness Area.
Recreation - There are more than 70 miles of hiking trails. The beach also features swimming, body surfing and surf fishing. Camping is also available, contact the parks department for reservations.
Climate - Climate in the Central Coast varies greatly with elevation and the amount of coastal influence. Areas with more coastal influence experience moderate temperatures year round with fog likely from June through mid-August. Plan your coastal visit in the late summer or fall to ensure the best conditions for viewing the scenery. Also, occasional clear days between winter and spring storms are incomparable. Areas further inland experience greater temperature extremes, with relatively cooler winters and hot summers. Inland areas often receive frost on winter nights. As throughout most of California most of the precipitation comes in the winter months, with April through October normally very dry.
The beach is 15 miles south of Oxnard on Highway One. 9000 W. Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, CA 90265
