Grover Beach: Ride your car onto the beach or walk it!

Posted by on Monday, February 25, 2019 Under: Grover Beach
On the Central Coast of California, in the county of San Luis Obispo, is a small beach called Grover Beach. It's part of the Pismo State Beach area and there is a direct beach entrance in through Grand Avenue to drive onto the beach. West Coast, at its finest, you can drive or ride your vehicle onto the beach here if you drive right on through the toll (for a small fee). The park rangers are in charge of the booth and can answer any questions that you may have.

You could always just walk to Grover Beach from Pismo Beach or Oceano by just simply walking on the sand towards Grover Beach as it's located right in between the two. (All Grover Beach photos below were taken by

Here is a video short of one of our rides from Grover Beach's Grand Ave Beach Entrance through Oceano below.

If you would like to go onto the beach by foot, you can do that too! In the parking lot of Fin's Restaurant, before you see the toll, off of Grand Avenue is a lot for free beach parking. The public restrooms are also right there as you park. Find nearby hotels in Grover Beach. 

Welcomed with a whale watching guide on the deck of Grover Beach, you instantly feel like you've uncovered a San Luis Obispo and Pismo State Beach secret. Quaint and clean, Grover Beach let's you see the majestic view of where the mountains meet the sea on this side of the coast. During the summer weekends, it gets really busy and sometimes the parking permit for the day to drive and park on the beach sell out. See a YouTube Video Short below of our drive on the beach from Grand Ave. in Grover Beach on a busy summer day lined with cars on the sand.
