buccs_01Buccaneer Beach & Park
One of the main reasons people stay at Paradise, is to enjoy our beautiful Pacific Ocean views! The park has a playground, basketball court, gazebo, cafe, and restrooms. Many of our guests take a daily walk along the beach to the pier. Legend has it, that a pirate ship sunk off our coast, leaving hidden beneath the ocean depths…stolen treasures. Thus, Buccaneer Beach. Shiver me timbers! Enjoy breakfast or lunch on the beach… Website: Buccaneer Café>>>

Walk to the end and watch local fisherman show off their catch of the day! Fishing permits aren’t required on the pier, which is why it’s a popular spot! Website: www.mainstreetoceanside.com
