Oceanside Harbor is an entertainment center located a short distance from the San Diego 5 Freeway and right next to the beach. It includes a lighthouse, restaurants, gift shops and fishing excursions and boat tours..  From fine dining in restaurants such as the Chart House or fish and chips, burgers, ice cream and sandwiches at indoor/outdoor cafes with umbrella shaded tables overlooking the harbor, the scent of food will make you want to stop and eat. Aromas floating through the air include fried fish & chips, charbroiled fish and steaks and gourmet grind coffees.

Harbor Village shops sell souvenirs, gift cards, clothing and a variety of unique nautical gifts. A special annual event is Harbor Days, held the 3rd weekend in September. 


This girl is getting a wrap at one of the kiosk shops in the harbor. Charged at approximately $2 per inch, the stylist said that if taken care of, this can last for up to 6 months.  He estimated this one would cost around $20.

This mecca for sportfishing, whale watching, boating and other water-oriented activities offers daily outings which range from a few dollars to a full day of fishing for around $50 Transient moorings and limited RV beach camping are available.
