Hollywood Beach is a best kept secret. This beautiful beach is really a peninsula that runs along side the Channel Islands Harbor. The Hollywood beach community is bordered on the north by the Mandalay Beach Resort and on the southern end by the harbor entrance. This location is what makes Hollywood Beach a sought after beach address.

Hollywood Beach was discovered in the 1920's by the movie industry. The beach was used as the Arabian Desert location set for the filming of The Sheik. Film stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Carol Lombard and Clark Gable than started purchasing get away homes on Hollywood Beach.

Oxnard Shores (Mandalay Shores) is our most northerly beach. With a west north-west exposure, Oxnard Shores has incredible views of the Channel Islands.

Oxnard Shores is our largest beach community with the most single family homes and the largest lot sizes. Homes range from 900 square feet to ocean front homes of approximately 7400 square feet. The sand on this beach has grown over the past 20 years giving Oxnard Shores one of the largest sandy beaches.

Surfing on this beach is good during a south swell (summer) and a north-west swell (winter). Hundreds of feet off the shoreline run a deep water trench that increases the waves in just the right swell.
