At the Sandcastle Inn, it’s all about the little extras. The boutique oceanfront hotel is right on the beach, so close to the sand that you might get the occasional seagull on your private balcony. Most travelers to Pismo Beach are there for the ocean, and past guests say it’s worth it to upgrade to a room with a view. All rooms are fresh and traditional with a nautical theme and microwaves, fridges, free Wi-Fi and private outdoor space.
In addition to perfect vistas of sea and surf, the long stretch of planks and pilings of the Pismo Beach Pier is clearly visible. It’s just a five-minute walk to the pier and the surrounding shops and eateries. You can spend the day strolling the area and relaxing on the beach.
Or get your adrenaline flowing and surf the swells for which Pismo Beach is known. Novice and expert surfers alike come to Pismo’s waters for the “barrels”—surfer speak for the highly coveted tube shape the wave makes as it breaks. Sharpen your skills or learn to be a wave rider at any one of the surf schools dotting the shore.
When you’re waterlogged, head back to the hotel’s upper deck and sit by the outdoor fireplace to watch the sun go down. Get an energy boost before dinner with the free coffee and freshly baked cookies in the hotel lobby then cap off the night with a meal at one of the seafood shacks populating the downtown area.
