BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Just south of Oceanside Pier, this is the city's most popular beach. All of the surfing, bodyboarding, and bodysurfing contests are held here.
  • During the summer, surfing is restricted. The area from Lifeguard Tower 1 south is closed most of the day. Surfers do have a designated stretch: Lifeguard Tower to 100 feet from the pier.
  • Traveling with a posse? Non-surfers will appreciate the covered picnic tables, BBQ grills, pay phones, and more. The beach is also close to downtown shops and restaurants.
