Oceanside has always had a pier since it was incorporated in 1888. It has provided a fishing venue as well as a pleasant walk over water. Our piers have made a trip to Oceanside's beach very memorable for kids of all ages. They say there are over a million visitors to the pier each year. There is a Ruby's Diner that provides good eats and excellent Ocean views.
Our beaches are known to be wide and sandy with mild wave action. Surfers spread out along our over three miles of coast line. The pier is a great place to watch the surfers. You might dream of them flying through the pier pilings, but remember it is illegal. Our beaches each carry a local name and make up different crowds that use them. From Harbor beach on the North to St. Malo to the South you will find beach goers looking for a little different experience.
Remember there are no bad days at the beach.
