Cool view

Lots of folks fishing off of the pier. Great for watching the surfers, but nothing else to do on the pier itself as the restaurant had closed due to COVID.

Love It!

Every time we’re in Oceanside we visit the pier. The views are outstanding & the air is so fresh! Walking the long wooden pier never gets old. We generally see dolphins & we enjoy watching the people fishing. They have a small store about halfway where you can rent fishing poles & buy bait. This is a very beautiful & enjoyable place.

Nice, but Not as Nice as Many Ocean Piers in California
May 2021
It's a decent spot, but there are other piers in California and even San Diego I much prefer. It's lively and has the option of trying on a wig at the wig shop while waiting for your sushi order around the corner.

Walked with my kids from our hotel to the end of the pier, hungry for breakfast at Ruby's...only to discover that Ruby's closed! It was a very long, disappointing and hungry back back down the pier and back to our hotel.

Pier stroll

Good view and accessibility to beach. There were homeless people pretending to be fishing on the pier but had signs on their backpack asking for money. At the end of the pier you could tell they had been sleeping on the pier.

It’s a fishing Pier
May 2021 • Family
We stop by the pier to do a little walk and enjoy the sunset on the water the walk was nice and the breeze was really cool and half way throw the pier you’ll see all the fishing man are everywhere and the smell start to send you back to the first of the pier where you start from

It was couple good surfers on the side of the pier make it little more fun for us to watch them having fun on their surfing 🏄‍♂️

The Healing Pier
Feb 2021
We were in Oceanside for the night in order to go to a funeral the next morning. The hotel we stayed at suggested we take a walk on the pier after we checked in. We did and were so glad. It was a beautiful evening, calm, mild breeze and pleasant temperature. The water was reflective of the moonlight and as we walked we could feel the tension leaving our bodies. We were able to walk and talk about our heavy thoughts and when we returned to the hotel we felt some relief and slept well.

We look forward to returning to the pier were ourway hearts had a chance to start the healing process.
