Oceanside Pier

At 1,942 feet, the historical Oceanside Pier is one of the longest wooden piers on the West Coast.  Take a leisurely stroll out over the Pacific Ocean, watch the surfers ride a wave, fishermen catch a fish, or grab a bite to eat at the famous Ruby’s Diner located at the end of the pier.

At the entrance of the Pier is the Amphitheater which hosts many musical and cultural performances.

The Oceanside Pier holds special memories for Oceanside residents and visitors alike. Whether you visit the Oceanside Pier in the morning, afternoon, or evening – enjoy it from the beach or by walking along its incredible wooden expanse each day offers something new to behold.

The pier is the backdrop for some great Oceanside events, which include concerts, surf competitions, Iron Man, Fishing Derby, Classic Car Shows, and it is within walking distance to the Farmer’s and Sunset Markets.

If you are looking for some wildlife exposure, the Oceanside Pier is a great place to see Seagulls, Pelicans, Dolphins, Seals, Sting Rays, Fish, and much more.
