Sports Activities

Pismo Beach is surrounded by golf courses. There is horseback riding on the beach, fishing off of our pier or surfing next to it. Kite surfing is starting to show up on a regular basis when the wind is right. There is a selection of trails to explore (map .pdf) We have it all!

Fishing from the Pier generally results in some good catches of red snapper and ling cod. No license is required for pier fishing, but is required for deep sea or surf fishing. Bait, tackle and rental gear are available on the pier. NOTE: There is now paid parking in the pier lot. More Pier Information
