This beach town is a place for of all ages walking around in wetsuits and swim suits roaming the beach, walking the pier, admiring the waves, and tying their surfboards to the tops of their cars. This is where people go to get away from the crowds near the pier. Oceano is known for having lots of dolphins and it is a popular longboard spot. To see where the locals tend to surf, park on the lot to the south of the beach entrance. The Northernmost part of the beach provides some great waves as well.
