The name Port Hueneme is derived from the Spanish spelling of the Chumash phrase for “Resting Place.” Considering Port Hueneme’s laid-back, small-town atmosphere, the name has proven a good fit. White sand beaches enhance the city’s natural beauty.
Port Hueneme holds a rich history prior to its incorporation in 1948. Thomas Bard learned of Hueneme Canyon under the ocean’s surface. He then used this information to construct what stands today as the only deep-water port between Los Angeles and San Francisco. On a community level, Port Hueneme is known for its annual beach festival, complete with live music, rides and a variety of attractions. Naval Base Ventura County lends a significant military presence to the neighborhoods and population.
