    The Oceanside Harbor and Marina

    by matcrazy1 Updated Jul 17, 2003

    What does it mean marina? It's a small port that is used for pleasure rather than trade, often with hotels, restaurants and bars. Hmm... it seems that there is no one exact word in my language for marina.

    The marina in Oceanside looks very, very lovely. Great place to eat, walk around and to watch sunsets !

    Visit Oceanside's Pier

    by Goner Updated Apr 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The historic Oceanside Pier is a prized community resource as well as a monument to its citizens' persistence in seeing that a pier remains a part of its oceanfront recreational facilities. You will see names of these resident contributors carved into the railings on the bridge.

    While a fishing license is required for surf fishing on the beach, no license is needed for fishing off the pier.

    Check out the Oceanside Harbor

    by Goner Updated Apr 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oceanside's Harbor is a mecca for sportfishing, whale watching, boating and other water-oriented activities. The Marina inside the harbor has sloops ranging in length from 25-51 feet. Transient moorings and limited RV beach camping are available. Harbor Days is a scheduled annual event held the 3rd weekend in September.

    Go to the Beach!

    Oceanside has a wide, sandy beach 3.5 miles long. The number of surfers present was a good indication that this is a good location for the sport. The beach was pretty deserted in April but I'd like to return in the summer.

    The Oceanside Pier

    by annk Updated Apr 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The pier is quite large jutting into the Pacific Ocean. If you're walking along the coast you can't miss it. Half way down there are restrooms and a bait and tackle shop and snacks/postcards/drinks for sale. At the end of the pier is a restaurant - Ruby's. You'll see many people fishing and a wonderful view of the surfers, beach and coastline with the mountains as a backdrop.

    Roughly a 30 minute drive from Oceanside- The activities one expects in a big city but pristine none the less.
