Highlights | Logisitcs | Getting There


Oceanside, once considered a military town because of its proximity to Camp Pendleton, now enjoys a reputation as a tourist-friendly destination. Locals, families, and tourists alike enjoy Oceanside’s beach and harbor. Its wide expanse of sandy, palm-covered beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, surfing, or simply romping in the blue Pacific. Oceanside’s beach is adjoined by “The Strand,” a main street that is excellent for strolling, rollerblading, or bike riding. Volleyball courts are set up along the beach, and the pier is considered excellent for surf fishing.

Oceanside Harbor’s yacht basin offers easy access to the Pacific as well as many shopping and dining opportunities. Check out the Oceanside Marina Inn for accommodations right on the marina!


Oceanside City Beach has lifeguards, restrooms, a snack bar and disability access. Restaurants and assorted sundries are available at nearby Cape Cod Village. Paid parking lots border both sides of the pier. There is also a cheaper lot east of the railroad tracks or you can park for free along The Strand.

Getting There

Take I-5 north from San Diego to Oceanside exits, head West to the beaches.
