The Seaward Avenue Beach district is a small area, yes, but it is one of the more charming places in all of Ventura.  If offers the ambience of a classic Southern California beach town, access to the beach and some very nice eateries.

The beach itself is gorgeous and is fairly well protected by the breakwaters.  Jetties serve to keep the sand in place.

Directions:
Northbound: From the 101, take the Seaward Avenue exit and turn towards the ocean.  Follow the street to the end.  There is some parking at the end of the road for the beach, but not a lot.  Most of the parking is on the street - and it is fairly precious.  If you can carpool you'll be better off in the long run.

Southbound: From the 101, take the Seaward exit.  At the bottom of the ramp, turn left.  Turn right turn onto Seaward Avenue.
