Point Mugu  is an Unincorporated community and geographical promontory on the Pacific coast in Ventura County, near the town of Port Hueneme and the city of Oxnard. It is home to Point Mugu State Park, which boasts five miles of shoreline and more than 70 miles of hiking trails. The name is believed to be derived from the Chumash Indian term Muwu, meaning beach, which was first mentioned by Cabrillo in his journals in 1542. The Mugu Rock is a distinctive feature of the coastal headland promontory that has been featured in many film shoots and television commercials. The Rock was formed when a path for the Pacific Coast Highway was cut through the mountain. It marks a western end of the Santa Monica Mountains, and the old Rancho Guadalasca boundary. It is a popular but dangerous place for fishing, sightseeing, cliff diving, and rock climbing up the sheer sides of the rock itself.  Source
