About The

A Community Destination

The 5-acre oceanfront site upon which the Beach House now sits, was originally developed during the Gold Coast era of the 1920s by William Randolph Hearst for actress Marion Davies. The property was sold to the State of California in 1959, continuing to operate as the ever-popular Sand & Sea Club under a concession agreement.

The site opened to the public as the Annenberg Community Beach House on April 25, 2009. The Beach House combines elements of the historic Marion Davies Estate with new amenities to create a truly unique community destination that's open to all - no membership required.


An event space like no other, The Beach House is a unique, inclusive community destination combining a historic legacy with contemporary amenities, spectacular views, splash pad, playground, beach courts & fields, and community & cultural events.
