Get To Know


The most popular beach in O’side.

Expect crowds, but the view is amazing.

Roll out your beach towel on Pier View South Beach and you’ll be in the middle of lots of O’side beach action. True to its name, this sandy beach is located south of the pier, and thanks to its great break conditions, it’s the site of surfing, body boarding, and body surfing contests throughout the summer. For safety, no water activity is allowed within 100 feet of the pier. Instead, look for the different flags marking activity boundaries for surfing and swimming between Tower 1, located just south of the pier, and Tower 3, another 300 feet further to the south.


Find restrooms and showers, covered picnic tables, benches, and barbeques at Pier View South, plus some fire rings in the sand. Vending machines and food vendors can be found under the pier in front of the Beach Community Center. Up on the pier itself, find a bait shop, more restrooms and lots of spots to drop your fishing line.
