Oceanside, California

Beach Day at Buccaneer Beach

Originally added by Grant

A great place to bring the family for the beach, waves, food, and the ducks at the park!

If you're looking for a beach to bring your family, Buccaneer Beach is the place to go. It has a little bit of everything plus a huge parking lot, so it's really never full (unless you go midday on the 4th of July or something).

There is a grassy area next to the parking lot with benches to have a picnic and watch the ducks. There is a small restaurant that serves amazing food next to the parking lot as well, so if you forget lunch or snacks, you can go there. The beach is open and stretches for miles in either direction with a lifeguard stand so you can feel safe that someone is watching you.

The surf can be great or so so, like any other beach, but you'll have a blast regardless. Just bring some games, a great attitude, and some sunblock!
