Our Local Surf Spots

Pismo Beach is known for its waves, which beckon surfers all year long to visit our coastal town. With miles of coastline, our beaches leave plenty of space for both beginners and experienced surfers. Pismo Beach is known for its barrels - especially in the Winter - where surfers are likely to experience a good break at the pier, with the best swell direction from the southwest. The south side of the Pismo Pier is typically better for surfing than the north, and the further south you venture from the pier, the more secluded the water tends to be. Please note, in the Winter we highly recommend wet suits for the cooler water temps.

We invite you to experience the best of Pismo Beach from Sandcastle Hotel, where some of the best surf spots are just a short walk from our hotel near Pismo & Grover Beach. Other nearby surfing destinations include Morro Bay, Cayucos, Moonstone Beach, and Pico Creek.
