Food was ok Pier walk prey cool. Great views all walks of life and sunset pretty cool. If you like to layout or run out the beach it's pretty safe.

Very nice pier provides a great view along the coast and of the surfers nearby. The pier was in great shape and has ample room for people to walk and fish from.

Just a stroll on this pier is fine, but tourists can fish free also. Tackle rentals are cheap, and right on the pier.

The beach is well kept with plenty of soft sand. Sunset's are gorgeous. Ruby's Diner has a fun blast from the past 50's type diner.

Always enjoy my rides to the pier and harbor. Take a walk on the pier, watch the surfers, visit with the pelicans from a distance!

It is a pier, with not much else, but it is a nice walk to see the ocean, pelicans, and just enjoy being outside. My favorite, a sign in front of 3 pelicans that read, "we are wild animals, we bite stupid people"

You can park very nearby and take a walk out this long pier and look back at Oceanside. Oceanside is not a pricey out of reach place like Del Marr and some areas seem a little touristy but from the pier the place is beautiful....More
