Welcome to the City of Port Hueneme, home to the Pacific Seabees and Naval Base Ventura County, the largest employer in the County. Port Hueneme is also known for having the only deep-water commercial harbor between Los Angeles and San Francisco, where $8 billion in goods each year are moved into and out of the country.
Hueneme, known by the native Chumash as “resting place,” offers a beautiful 50-acre beach park with a fishing pier, BBQ areas, volleyball nets, and snack bar/seafood restaurant. The summer months bring a variety of festivals and beach activities. Fall and winter months are mild and sunny, so our beach facilities may be enjoyed year-round.
If you’re looking to relocate or establish your business here, Port Hueneme is commerce friendly with a talented and educated workforce in the area. We are close to highly-ranked community colleges as well as California State University - Channel Islands. Port Hueneme also has the most affordable housing anywhere within Ventura County.
The City takes pride in promoting its small-town atmosphere while maintaining a high quality of life with exceptional public safety services, spacious parks and recreational facilities, well-maintained roads and streets, and beautiful landscaping throughout the city. Simply put, Port Hueneme is a great place to live and work.
As Mayor and 40-year resident of this community, I invite you to come to Port Hueneme and enjoy our hospitality, beautiful beach and all the amenities we have to offer. Once you do, you’ll then understand why we’re known as the “Jewel of the Gold Coast" and the “Friendly City by the Sea.”
