Pismo is a laid-back beach community and a popular destination for activities like swimming, surfing, kayking, fishing and clam-digging. After taking a dip in the ocean, traverse the tree-lined dunes of Pismo State Beach and enjoy a coastal hike or day of bird-watching. This park also boasts the largest over-wintering colony of monarch butterflies in the country. Looking for something a little more adventurous? Check out tours of the beach and surrounding region via Hummer or bi-plane.
