“Oceanside Pier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The Oceanside Pier is great no matter what time of day you go, I love standing on the pier watching the surfers and swimmers, I also like watching people fish and seeing pelicans look at you hoping you have some food for them. I love walking to the end of the pier and seeing other people who enjoy the scenery as much as I do. If your in Oceanside go to the pier walk around, you won't be disappointed

“Oceanside Pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The view from this popular pier is beautiful, but it is FILTHY! I almost gagged walking along the pier. It's such a shame whoever doesn't clean the pier to make it even close to presentable to the public.

“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Places to eat and affordable outdoor activities like kayaking. Great views, not as crowded as some other beach areas as the town mainly serves the Marine Corp base.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Fun place to eat and watch the people fish. We saw one guy who caught a stingray and big Starfish and threw them back in the ocean.

“Beautiful Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This is a beautiful place to see the ocean and views of Oceanside. However, they have not done a very good job keeping up the pier. Several of the garbage cans are all white from the bird droppings, not very pleasing to the eye. I did get several photos of surfers, the sites, and sailboats.
