Pismo Beach Dunes

The Oceano sand dune area is recognized by scientists, conservationists, government agencies, and the public as the finest, most extensive coastal dunes remaining in California. The dunes are an incredible sight to behold. You can hike, surf, paraglide, fish, dig for clams, ride horseback, rent ATVs, and more! This unique recreational area is home to diverse wildlife, as well. Stop by the Oceano Dunes Visitor Center and experience hands-on exhibits about local plant and animal species, Pismo clams, off-road vehicles, and the cultural history of a collection of bohemian artists and writers, such as John Steinbeck and Upton Sinclair, called the Dunites. Behind the center, visit a fresh water lagoon and its inhabitants. It is always wise to “know before you go.”
