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.

Oceanside Pier Yelp Reviews

What a great pit stop on the way to San Diego. We went all the way to the end and ate at Ruby’s. We had excellent service. We went early so we didn’t experience any crowds, but I can see how this place can get really crowded. ~Alex S. from Fontana, CA.

Too many memories walking down this lovely pier and I really miss coming here!

After the sunset market it’s nice to just walk around the beach and pier enjoy how interesting how the people catch the fishes, sting rays. I’ve come down here so many times I’ve seen dolphins and seals swimming around the pier.  Also a huge purple jellyfish! That lovely well known pelican that chills there.  The bonfire nights.  You gotta love the this beach. ~Ina V. from Milpitas, CA.

Super long pier.  Lots of fishing going on.  Friendly pelican hangs out there.  There’s a small shop halfway down that sales fishing supplies and postcards for 25 cents.  Great views of the ocean and lovely breeze. ~Julie N. from Denver, CO.
