  • Shell Beach near Pismo Beach is beautiful. The cliffs offer a gorgeous view of the ocean and local birds. Margo Dodd is a nice park nearby for kids and dogs. Since the weather is mild to cool most of ...  more »
  • I have been to two weddings there and it is an outstanding place for a wedding as long as the weatherman cooperates.  more »
  • Very nice beach and nice restaurants. Too bad the Pier was close was renovated and also the famous Butterfly Garden!

  • This small beauty should not be over looked. Just down the street from Dinosaur Caves Park, this small patch of grass houses a gazebo that over looks the ocean. To the left, large rocks covered with pelicans and other birds. However, the real treasure is to the right, below the cliffs. A short walk to your right leads to a set of stairs that leads down to the beach. Supposedly tide pools reside in the area, however I think we came during a higher tide and were unable to see them. The area was gorgeous and almost adventurous looking. Great spot!
  • Awfully nice park up against the cliffs near BBQs playground equipment and picnic tables. Beautiful views of the ocean here
  • If you go to the right of the park, there is a staircase leading down to the beach where you'll find some caves, several tide pools, and tons of hermit crabs all along the rocks!!! We also saw some seals sunbathing! We were hoping for starfish, but didn't see one.
  • Gorgeous views, scenic overlook, tons of birds, grassy areas, perfect for the entire family.
  • This cute tiny little beach park is right between Dinosaur Caves & the Conservancy Beach area. There is not much here, except great views. Beach access via stairs (& at low tide) is about a block down, but is not apart of this park. Some people get married at the little gazebo on the grounds. This park is one of many small or large beach parks all along this area. Many are popular with locals & surfers. While this one is cute, it is more for tourists that also stop at DC Park. It is good for a Pizza picnic from the nearby Del's Pizza. BTW- watch the UV & steep drop here!
