We enjoy the pier in the evenings to watch the sunset. People are always friendly and it’s fun to watch all the fishermen.

Such a nice Pier! Fishing, nice walk, bathrooms on the pier, places to sit and a restaurant ($$) at the end to watch the sunset from! Nice place for a cheap romantic dinner at a diner watching the sunset with a burger and shake....

Met family for a visit, having an awesome lunch nearby, then walking the pier and enjoying the beautiful weather and awesome views of the Pacific Ocean and shoreline!

Great place to visit. Oceanside still has the old California vibe with many newer Restuarants and pubs! Oceanside beach is easy to get to and has some of the best surfing in socal. Friendly town and safe for all.

No bikes on the pier, but there are lots of places to ride near the pier.
