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