Awesome views from the new Sunset Park - downtown OC at S. Division Street.  It is on the bay and is a great place to view Assateague Island and West OC. Best time to go is sunset, great photo opp!  The views from the pier on the Boardwalk, the ferris wheel and roller coaster at Trimper's Rides also offer a great glimpse of the island. Northside Park on 127th is a relaxing, quiet place to see the bayside of OC.   Check out the OC Rocket for an ocean cruise - excellent way to see OC from the water!
