Port Hueneme (pronounced /ˌpɔrt waɪˈniːmiː/ wye-NEE-mee) is a small beach city in Ventura County, California surrounded by the city of Oxnard and the Pacific Ocean. The name derives from the Spanish spelling of the Chumash wene me, meaning "resting-place". The area was discovered by Cabrillo in 1542, and the original city of Hueneme is the second-oldest city in Ventura County. The name was officially changed to Port Hueneme in 1939, and was incorporated March 24, 1948.

The population was 21,845 at the 2000 census. The April 2010, California Department of Finance estimates the population at 21,887. [1].
