Visitor Information

Oceanside is bordered by Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton to the north and the Buena Vista Creek and Lagoon to the south. Like many Southern California beach towns, Oceanside’s dominant feature is its coastline -- 3.5 miles of sandy beaches -- where it hosts surf contests throughout the year.

It also boasts North County’s sole public marina with more than 1,000 boat slips and a municipal pier. The low-key beach vibe complemented by a municipal airport, Amtrak and Sprinter stations make a natural tourist destination.
