Pier View South is where the action happens. If you don’t mind crowds, you’ll love Oceanside’s most popular beach. Activities and contests abound: body surfing contests, bodyboarding, surfing, and various events held at the Amphitheater–not to forget the actual Pier, with its beautiful walk and popular fishing spots.

In the summer, the area from Tower 1 south is closed to surfing most of the day. This area is marked by a black ball as well as signs and flags. No water activity is allowed within 100 feet of the pier.

Alongside all of the action and activities, amenities include:

  • Covered picnic tables
  • Benches
  • Barbeques
  • Fire rings
  • Pay phones
  • Vending machines
  • Close to downtown shops and eateries
