Lots and lots of sand
The beaches that lie on the north side of the Oceanside Municipal Pier tend to be somewhat less crowded than the beaches directly south of the pier as the Oceanside Amphitheater is located to the south and most of the surfing competitions and other activities occur near to the Amphitheater. The Pier View North beach is nonetheless very popular for its surfing, fire rings, and volleyball. This often makes for a quiet, more relaxed atmosphere.
Facilities: Volleyball courts, restrooms, fire pits, and close prozimity to snacks and numerous amenities on pier
Parking: one pay parking lot, or metered parking on Pacific or nearby streets
Directions: From I-5 exit Mission Avenue and travel West - this will take you almost directly to beach
