Anacapa Island and the Channel Islands National Park

Covering just over a square mile and located about 12 miles from the nearest mainland in Oxnard, Anacapa Island may be small in size, but it’s rich with history — from sheepherders and rum runners to shipwrecks and a lighthouse.

Anacapa is comprised of three small islets; East, Middle, and West. Exploration is permitted on the east islet, accessed via the Landing Cove, and a small beach on the west islet called Frenchys Cove.   The middle islet and most of the western islet remain a wilderness area set aside for nesting seabirds, like the endangered California Brown Pelican.

Learn more about this beautiful place during a talk with Doug Williams.
