Here’s a list of wellness activities you won’t want to miss in each location during your multi-day trip.

Camarillo

Pamper yourself and treat your body right at one of Camarillo’s popular medical spas then recover discreetly in the privacy and comfort of your hotel room. Some of these spas are known to treat some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities! Find your Zen during an outdoor yoga class or round of golf. The Camarillo Yoga Studio offers classes at a handful of secluded gardens and parks filled with sun-dappled oaks and blooming flowers. It’s sure to set your mind at ease as you stretch and breathe. If golf is more your style, head to one of Camarillo’s four award-winning courses. Each 18-hole course is known not only for its unique design but also for stunning views of Camarillo’s mountains, hills and fields.

Oxnard

It’s time for a trip to the beach! Spend the day splashing in the waves or sunning on a plush beach towel, reading a good book. Whatever your vibe, you’ll love spending some quality “me time” on one of Oxnard’s beautiful, uncrowded beaches. Another option is to rent a bike and cruise the Oxnard Bike Trail. Fill your lungs with the rejuvenating ocean breeze as you pedal from Oxnard Beach Park south past Hollywood Beach and the Channel Islands Harbor. It’s a flat, easy ride that’s perfect for all ages.

Ventura

Your cares will melt away as you glide across the water in a kayak or on a standup paddle board in Ventura Harbor. This is a great place to look for seals, birds, and other wildlife as you take in the beauty of your surroundings. Next, treat yourself to something sweet at Coastal Cone Co. Ice Cream and Yogurt. You’ll love the creamy, cool texture and out-of-this-world flavor of their handcrafted ice cream dancing on your tongue! If you prefer something a little more inland, the Ventura Botanical Gardens look and smell heavenly with thousands of plant species from all over the world. And the newly opened Harmon Canyon Preserve is a hiker’s paradise filled with centuries-old oak trees, swaying grasses, and wind-swept vistas.

Port Hueneme

Continue your relaxing Ventura County Coast vacation at Port Hueneme Beach Park. The local scenery simply can’t be beat as you’re chilling on the sun-soaked beach or strolling along the pier. The sound of rolling waves and soaring birds will lull you into a sense of bliss. The sea salt spray and exfoliating sand in your toes makes it feel like an outdoor spa day!

Channel Islands

Channel Islands National Park provides a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, with miles of natural coastline, beaches and hiking trails. The park’s giant kelp forests are an underwater playground for divers and snorkelers alike. The islands also offer an egg-cellent opportunity for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. Keep your ears and eyes open for shorebirds, seals, whales, dolphins and even foxes! The island fox is a descendant of the mainland gray fox and found only at the Channel Islands. Island Packers offers daily boat rides out to the islands from both Channel Islands Harbor and Ventura Harbor.
