Welcome from the Mayor of Port Hueneme
City Logo
Known regionally as the “Jewel of the Gold Coast” and locally as “The Friendly City by the Sea,“ Port Hueneme offers an inviting environment for visitors and residents alike. The community of 22,500 residents is contained within a 4.5 square-mile area located on the Central Coast between Santa Barbara and Santa Monica. The City's name (pronounced "Wy-nee'mee") is derived from a Chumash word meaning "resting place."

Attributes that draw residents and businesses to the community include its small-town atmosphere, affordable housing, diverse economy, temperate climate, clean air, low crime, quality education, plentiful recreational amenities (including the City’s 60-acre beach park), responsive municipal workforce and home-town law enforcement. For visitors, we welcome you to come and explore all that the City has to offer as showcased in the descriptive photos that follow.

As illustrated in the graphic to left, Port Hueneme is actually comprised of three separate entities:  Naval Base Ventura County, commonly referred to as the “Seabee Base,” the deep-water commercial “Port of Hueneme” and the predominately residential community of “Hueneme” that makes up the balance of the City.   The community is flanked by the City of Oxnard, Channel Islands (small craft) Harbor, Ormond Beach Wetlands and the Pacific Ocean.
