Cayucos State Beach
Cayucos is a charming little beach town rich in history and popular for its great beaches. It is known for its fishing pier, beautiful beach and historical buildings. Many of the buildings left over from the prospering old town still stand as a variety of shops such as restaurants, antique stores, and specialty items.
The sandy beach offers mild weather, watersports such as surfing and swimming, and tidepooling. Lifeguards are on duty during peak summer months. Junior lifeguard training is available through the County Parks of San Luis Obispo. There are picnic tables, play equipment, restrooms, and outside showers available. The pier is lit for night fishing and a fishing license is not required while fishing on the pier. Click here to access the State Parks webpage.
