“The surf is usually safe and predictable and a lifeguard during summer months plus a beautiful walk on the pier. There are walk up food counters at Duckies, Ocean Front Pizza and the most incredble Ruddells Smoke House where every single thing on the menu will melt in your mouth. At Schooners restaurant you can sip a Mojito or Bloody Mary in the bar and still keep an eye on the kids at the beach. Kayaks, paddleboards, surfboards, wetsuits can be rented at Good Clean Fun or Cayucos Surf Company. Also public restrooms and showers to rinse the sand. Dont leave town without stopping by The Candy Counter or the famous Brown Butter Cookie company for a sweet treat!”
