Oceanside Beaches

What does Oceanside have in common with Coronado, Mission Beach & Imperial Beach?

Walk-out beaches! No towering cliffs here. The northernmost coastal city in  San Diego County,  Oceanside has become a haven for those seeking a larger & less trod upon beach.

Home to popular Oceanside Pier & Oceanside Harbor Marina, this stretch of coastline offers roomy walk out beaches, great surfing, fishing and vacationing options, all in a laid back atmosphere. A proliferation of new businesses, luxury high-rises, and eclectic eateries continue to change the “beach scene” and provides something for everyone.  “The Strand” that is City Beach, and Harbor Beach to the north, offer lengthy paved sea-walks, pay parking adjacent to the sand, several playgrounds, picnic areas, BBQ grills, fire pits, volleyball areas, restrooms and showers. Plenty of amenities and lots of elbow room make Oceanside’s beaches a favorite insider’s secret for the perfect day at the beach!
