The Ocean Beach is wide in structure, about a mile

long. Along the north end of the beach, you’ll find

a volleyball court. During the summer, the court is

always teeming with people playing volleyball while

the sand around it is teeming with people watching.

At the south end of the beach you’ll find the Ocean

Beach Municipal Pier. The Pier is open to the public

with plenty of walking and fishing available. Located

on the pier is a bait and tackle shop along with a

restaurant. Although you don’t need a fishing license

to fish off the dock, catch regulations are enforced.

If you walk to the south end of the beach you’ll find

many restaurants, surfing shops, and many other commercial

shops and establishments. Although you can travel to

the north end of Ocean Beach, it’s mostly bordered by

residents of the ocean area.

The unique part of Ocean Beach is the Dog Beach, located

at the north end. This sandy area is where dogs can

run and play without a leash – anytime – day or night.

Although dog owners are responsible for their dogs and

the clean up of them, Dog Beach is actually pretty

nifty for anyone who owns dogs.

For your protection along the beach, lifeguards are

out each and every day, year round. They are generally

on duty from 9 AM until dark although you can check with

them for their specific hours of operation. They are

there for your protection and very willing to answer

any question that you may have.

Keep in mind while on the beach, California beaches do

experience powerful rip currents. It’s because of these

currents that beaches in California experience over

1,000 rescues by lifeguards every year. To be on the

safe side while in San Diego at Ocean Beach, it’s

always a good idea to swim near a lifeguard.

For those who like surfing, surfing is permitted at

Ocean Beach in designated areas. Scuba isn’t recommended

however, because of the lack of undersea life, heavy

rip currents, and the surf.

For swimming or enjoying the California lifestyle, Ocean

Beach is a great place to go. It is a very popular

place in the summer, drawing hundreds of thousands of

people. If you long for a taste of the California

lifestyle, make sure you visit Ocean Beach in San
