    Port Hueneme is hardly a tourist destination. I stopped by to see the lighthouse because it's the first stop of my "California Lighthouses" trip. Too bad the lighthouse is inside the security area, surrounded by port facilities, Coast Guards, and Naval Base (but they do give a lighthouse tour every 3rd Saturday.) I only took a photo from the beach far away. I have to say, the lighthouse is the least romantic among all California lighthouses I've seen.

    Although squeezed between power plant and naval base, people in Port Hueneme still enjoy a nice beach stretching a few miles long. It even has a nice pier. From the photo you can see the beachcombers, the pier, and the power plant behind.

    A few miles southeast of Port Hueneme is Point Mugu Lagoon. There's a vista point right by PCH where you can stop and take a quick look. And that's probably all the time you need. You can see the marsh, some migrating birds, and the big power plant near Port Hueneme, as seen in photo.

    Favorite thing: This is not a tip per say but a reminder to please remember the 80 passengers and 5 crew members that perished off our shores 5 years ago on January 31, 2000.

    Favorite thing: The city owned Beach and fishing pier are great! Bar-B-Q on the beach, swim, surf. Nice sea food restraunt (Andy's) on the beach. Lighthouse (c1941 - w/lens from c1874 light) and CIMRI (Channel Islands Marine Research Institute) at "Point Hueneme". (Subject to security level).

    If you do get tired of the beach, there are many other things to see and do in the surrounding communities, such as: the Navy SeaBee Museum is a must!, The surrounding cities of Camarillo (which has a very large factory outlet), Ventura (with it's fabled Main Street and Antique shops, and the Ventura Spanish Mission & Museum). Fine eating abounds, and if all of that isn't enough we go to Los Angeles... 50 miles south!

    Check the Harbor Days Website at www.harbordays.org for details and a printable color handbill.
