Seafood and sunshine

This beautifully retro waterfront spot is where lazy beach days and visits to family wineries meet sand-duning and horse-riding adventures. The annual Clam Festival and evenings dining on clam chowder are perfect ways to enjoy what Pismo is most famous for.

Once there, take a drive out to one of the small family wineries and sample its delights, perhaps even purchase a bottle or two to enjoy whilst watching the sun go down.
