when you go down to the beach be sure to walk up the beach a few hundred feet until you can see the sewage treatment plant and its discharge pipe. not sure if beach has been tested for faecal counts or other micros. no signage to indicate. Perhaps Oceanside should be renamed to reflect this hidden gem. Also, you pay for the WIFI, but it hardly works. No real privacy between sites and for $58 per night, not great value.
