Situated in the north of Ventura County, just off Highway 101 is Mussel Shoals Beach. A pleasant stretch of golden sand backed by a clutch of low rise beachfront properties, the beach here has a fairly laid back vibe.

Probably the most recognizable feature of Mussel Shoals Beach is the long pier stretching out from mid beach. The pier leads out to a small island adorned with a number of palm trees. The island is in fact a man-made oil platform, but most casual visitors wouldn’t notice.

Mussel Shoals is fairly well known to the surfing community. Located just down the coast from the world famous point break of Rincon, the beach here is also known as “Little Rincon” and can produce some pretty good waves.

There are no facilities at Mussel Shoals beach and access is from neighbouring La Conchita beach.
