Spyglass Park is a lovely place to take in views along Shell Beach's coastline. If you wonder what the beautiful coast you see to the west is, it's the Dolphin Bay Resort Walkway. Sit on the bluffs and look out to sea and across at the yellow dunes of Oceano. Kids enjoy the large ship playground with tire swing, dune buggy, sand scooper, tunnel slide, and wavy slide. It's fun to roll down the sloping lawn behind the playground. There are some shady trees too!
This is a nice place to stop if you are doing a long drive with kids from San Francisco to Los Angeles. There is a gas station with snacks, clean restrooms, and Shell Beach souvenirs by the freeway exit.
The park itself has no restrooms, just porta-potties. Yuck!
Shell Beach has many fantastic lookout parks. One that you don't want to miss is Margo Dodd Park. If you need a happening place to eat and walk around, check out Pismo town and pier.
