Travel Tips for Pismo Beach

The Chumash Indians

by Acore_Beauty_4_U_Luv

Did you know…
Native American people still make their home on the Central Coast They have been living in what is now called Cambria for roughly 9,000 years? The coastal stretch from present-day Cayucos to San Carpoforo was their home .

Archeologists refer to these early coastal residents as 'playano', a name first given to them by early Spanish explorers. Playano translates as 'beach people'. Research has revealed that the area around present-day Cambria may have been occupied by as many as 200 families belonging to various tribes who shared a common language known as 'hokan'. These families included individuals from Chumash, Salinan and Esalen native groups. Intermarriage among these groups was common, as was trading and commerce.
Fading evidence of the occupation of these early groups can still be seen along the coastal beaches and byways in or near Cambria. 'Metate', smooth holes which have been worn in the face of boulders by countless years of grinding acorns (a staple food source), can be still be seen along the side of at least one local creek bed. Other evidence includes the presence of simple beach-side fire hearths which were used to prepare shellfish, another favorite food. Some of these sites are thought to date as far back as 4,000 BC.

Well known among these natives are the Chumash Indians. The Chumash lived along the Central Californian coast for hundreds of years. The Chumash interacted intimately with the ocean and were able to craft magnificent plank canoes made out of redwood trees that had drifted down the coast from Northern California. Unfortunately, after the establishment of the Spanish Missions in Central California in the late 1700s, the Chumash population began a rapid decline. Today, only about 7500 people of Chumash decent remain with a small group of them living in the last Chumash village located on the present grounds of the Santa Ynez Chumash Reservation (near Santa Barbara).

between LA and San Francisco--Pismo Beach

by painterdave

Just about halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco you can find a great beach to relax and enjoy the Pacific Coast. This beach has motels that are more budget minded than the expensive Santa Barbara area, and there are less people. This route on highway 101 is a more scenic trip than highway 5.
The fancier motels with a pool will run $135 a night while the others are much cheaper. You won't find the budget motels in Santa Barbara.
The beach has a flatness that you can walk a ways out when the tide is out. It also provides tide pools at the north end along the cliff. There is a pier at the center of town, and you will find the usual eateries, but nothing overly expensive, however.
There are many places to rent boogie boards, and surfboards, and even fishing equipment. The town has at least 3 Italian restaurants, many Chinese restaurants, barbecue restaurants, and the usual pizza hangouts.
In the south end of Pismo are two state run campgrounds with good access to the beach. These campgrounds have hot showers and flush toilets. Like all California State Campgrounds you will need a reservation. Google California State Campgrounds.
I have included some photos of things we like to do at Pismo. Tide pools, and hundreds of pelikans. There is a pelikan reserve north of town. Drive down and see it up close and personal.

Small Lower Dock

by KimberlyAnn

Something that was really startling was that near the end of the Port San Luis Pier in Avila, just outside of the restaurant, there was a narrow set of stairs that led to a small dock under the pier. You could hear splashing and barking below. As you descended these stairs, there was a sign that read, Warning, Sea Lions Bite. We were surprised to see a number of large sea lions lying all over this little dock, and another swimming along the side. There were none lying just below the stairs, but the other end of the short dock was quite full of these large mammals. We didn’t linger very long, we were afraid that the swimmer might just decide to haul out onto the dock where we were standing. It wasn’t the safest place to be, but quite interesting. If you have children watch them carefully if you venture below.

For a view from the upper dock of a Sea Lion and her calf, see photo two.

Pismo Beach

by Jamilammar

This is where I live. Really nice area but I've been here for my whole life so I'm a little tired of it :). It's very touristy on the holidays seeing as that we have the one beach left in the whole US that you can drive you car onto.
