Port Hueneme California History
The lighthouse of Port Hueneme has become a landmark of California beach towns, but many are unaware that it is actually a second building standing in its place. Located in California, it all began and ended with what locals call Oxnard's "slippery beach."
The beach has a wooden fishing pier (# 11) and is one of the most popular spots in Santa Barbara County, California and has hosted a number of major events in the history of Port Hueneme. The port also served as a US Navy and Coast Guard base, hosts the world's second largest naval base in Southern California, and provides access to a variety of military facilities, including a Marine Air Station, Marine Corps Base, Air Force Base, and Navy Yard. The Channel Islands Harbor is located at the southern end of Oxnard's beach town, south of Ventura County. The island of Anacapa, located 12 miles off the coast, defines the southern entrance to Santa Maria Bay and its southern entrance to the Santa Barbara Canal. The naval base and harbor share the same coastline and offer ocean views of Santa Monica Bay.
Forty percent of Ecuador's banana exports go to Port Bolivar and forty percent to the United States. In 2013, more than one-third of all US exports to Ecuador were imported from the port of Hueneme.
In 2014, the Port of Ecuador and Port Bolivar agreed to become sister ports to jointly promote the banana industry and promote trade and investment.
During the 1997-1998 shipping season, the port handled more cargo than any other port in the United States and more than twice as much cargo as the port of Los Angeles. At the end of the Second World War, 150,000 tonnes of cargo were handled every month in Port Hueneme. During this time, more building materials and equipment were shipped to PortHuenemo from other ports in the United States than from any other port. On 4 July 1940, work on the new port, which today houses the largest cargo terminal in the world, was officially completed. On the weekend of 6 and 7 July 1939, a two-day inauguration took place with a two-day opening ceremony and two days of public tours.
The deep-sea port met the requirements for access to recreational craft and provided an opportunity to bring Ventura County products to markets around the world.
The city's beaches are known to be relatively territorial, so it's best to just sit on one. If you are not living in Port Hueneme, how pleasant will the weather be in Port Huenemo this year?

Oxnard's coastal history tells a time when the Chumash Indians lived and fished in Port Hueneme and commuted by canoe to the offshore islands. Historians believe they used it as a stopover - away from the place or starting point for fishing.
Today, the US Navy operates a facility that supports the Seabee Center on the offshore island of San Nicolas as part of its Offshore Naval Air Station, making it one of the largest naval bases in the United States. The port was founded during World War II as a base of the US Navy's Pacific Fleet.
American-made squid trucks, financed by a grant from the Air Resources Board, and a new tug that will arrive in port in 2020, will further reduce emissions from port operations. Port Hueneme will even bring the world's first ship with zero-emission avocados to Ventura County and all of California. The island includes the port of Ventura, the San Nicolas Naval Air Station, a naval base, an offshore base for the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet, and a number of other facilities.
Port Hueneme is located at the southern tip of the island, north of Ventura County and south of Santa Barbara County.
At the end of World War II, the federal government seized the port, turning it into a naval base and building six docks for nine ships. At the end of the war, in 1947, Oxnard Harbor County secured a lease with the Navy for 134 hectares of land that existed on the land they had taken over. In 1960 they moved to buy the docks and two more hectares, and a recreational harbour was built, with about 2150 boats coming in and out.
The residents of Port Hueneme enjoy living in a high quality coastal community, especially compared to other high-priced communities in the area, such as Oxnard and Ventura County. Geographically, it has one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California and living proof that small is beautiful. Port Huangeme has the second largest beach of all California coastal cities and the third largest beach in California.
The beach town will also be named the greenest US port at the 2017 International Green Shipping Summit. Port Hueneme is unique in that its rich history, culture and tradition goes back to the Chumash Indians who have been living here for centuries, and its long-standing connection with the US Coast Guard is long established. When World War II broke out, the US military took control of the entire harbor and significantly enlarged the deep-water port.
