Welcome to Pismo Beach
Pismo Beach, a classic beach town, is located on California’s famous central coast, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles along Pacific Coast and 101 Highways. We offer long white beaches for taking a pleasant stroll or for just enjoying the spectacular views of the Pismo Beach sunset. Enjoy Pismo’s great weather and fabulous area wineries. Prefer a more active vacation? Central Coast Golfing, riding the dunes in a four-wheel ATV, horseback riding, surfing, body boarding, or fishing can all be part of a Pismo Beach vacation. Take a leisurely walk on our award-winning boardwalk adjacent to the Pismo pier. Shop at the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets, and be sure to visit the California Welcome Center while there.
This year marks our 75 th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee as an incorporated city. Much has happened over those 75 years, including many changes and improvements, but some things have stood the test of time like the wonderful memories made by our residents and visitors for multiple generations.
