San Buenaventura State Beach is a beach located in Ventura, California. It is located on Pedro Street, off of the 101 Freeway.

This beach consists of a 1,700 feet (520 m) pier that has a snack bar, restaurant, and bait shop. People often come to this beach to surf, swim, and picnic. Biking is also done here and there are bike trails that lead to other nearby beaches.

Several special events take place in this place, such as the Pirate Festival, triathlon, and volleyball tournaments.[1]

The nesting of the Snowy plover is monitored here and temporary informational/warning signs and fences (or ropes) are erected near nest sites during the breeding season. To help in the recovery of the bird, nonnative vegetation that threatens the beach habitat has been removed and beach goers are educated to the sensitive nature of the area to dunes and other sandy areas.[2]
