Beach stuff


We are a family of 6 and travelling to the Oceanside beach. Need some info regarding where we can rent/ buy beach umbrellas and stuff?

Are there any stores near the beach to buy this stuff or any place on the beach to rent it!?

Thanks in adv,


Coronado, California

You will find plenty of stores in Oside to buy beach stuff. You'll have no problem. But I'm not so sure about rentals. Maybe near the pier.

Enjoy your stay. The beaches are big and beautiful.

Thanks a lot for the information! I dont live in the US and have been once to Miami as well as Santa Monica but never laid eyes on such stores!

Here in Portugal, any beach you go to, you normally find dozens of small shops selling beach umbrellas, towels and stuff.. so was wondering what to do :D

Our beaches don't generally rent out that equipment. I don't know why. There may be small stores near the pier but I don't know the area that well. You will find LOTS of "beach stuff" in our normal supermarkets and in large pharmacies which sell all KINDS of things!

One pharmacy chain is CVS.

IF you put CVS,Oceanside,ca into Google, you will find a map that shows you nearby locations.
