- Pismo Beach and Pier: This 60-acre beach area includes a 1,200-foot pier that was built in 1968. The beach is ideal for snapper or cod fishing and for enjoying the sandy shore.
- Oceanfront Boardwalk: The award-winning boardwalk is next to the pier. Take a stroll to see if you can see whales swimming offshore or catch a sunset at the end of the day.
- Monarch Butterfly Grove: Check out the butterfly grove where thousands of monarch butterflies can be seen in season October-February. The beautiful butterflies gravitate to the eucalyptus trees.
