 Additional Information

You can drive down the beach and find a sandbar to your liking...this may be the best bet in the summer when swells are few and far between.

Atmosphere

This is where people go to get away from the crowds near the pier. Oceano is known for dolphins, and it is ALWAYS a bit bigger than Pismo (near the pier, to the north). A popular longboard spot with the 40+ crew. If you park at the parking lot to the south of the beach entrance you will see a few of the regulars. If you park in the homes you will see tourists from Bakersfield in the summer beach rentals.

General

It can get good, but it needs some strong swell and that rarely happens in the summer. There seems to be a good sandbar to the south near the rivermouth, as you travel south the size picks up a bit. Most people, however, paddle out in front of the parking lot at the Northernmost part of the beach.
