The sandstone bluffs we've seen that are on the move are in Carlsbad, Del Mar, and also Oceanside. These bluffs here in O'side are really close to the restroom and the play area. The netting around the base isn't going to stop a collapse. In the meantime, this small little plot of grass and play equipment is a welcome amenity for O'side's children as well as its homeless population. As this was a dreary and cloudy cold day, we did not see too many children (or even dogs) out enjoying the park.

This place reminds me of Venice beach...It smells like weed everywhere!!!! . People drink alcohol and smoke marijuana on the beach and on the sidewalk like nothing. You will see police cars patrolling the area every few minutes but they are worthless, they truly don't care about what's going on. I tried visiting with my 5 and 2 year old but this is NOT kid friendly at all. Not recommended at all and will not be back.

Pretty much all (or most) of the major O'side beach area lies between Breakwater Beach and Tyson Beach. Harbor Beach is much further down the shore, towards Harbor Village in the Marina, and is quite different in its attractiveness. We spent a week on the Strand and thoroughly enjoyed the sunsets, the people watching, and the vitality of the beach environment. There's a cute little grassy park at the base of Tyson Street with play equipment and places to throw a frisbee. Anytime two palm trees are close to each other, there's likely to be a tightrope or bouncing cords tied to the trees and acrobats/gymnasts performing amazing feats. Then there are creative sand castle builders fully absorbed in creating their kingdoms in the sand. Surfers plied the waves, wiping out as often as they get a good ride. The only definition between the beach strips is the official park signage for Tyson Park and then the other sign on the restroom facility clearly marked as Breakwater Beach. Other than that, sand is sand and it all blends in to each other. The Strand pretty much encompasses all the beach area between Wisconsin Avenue (one end of the Strand) and its furthest point by the condos at the end of the Strand.

Beach is pretty much gone, the lifeguard tower sits on practically the only sand left with litte space to the south of it. Get there early if you want a spot. Most of what is there gets take up by SCAL beach club guests, so you may need to move north if you want a spot.

The bottom of the stairs (it's a good distance down those stairs) is where the park and play equipment is located. The city put up some buffers that look like brightly colored beach balls made out of concrete to keep the Strand's vehicle traffic from the park. It's not that far from the pier but the pier has its own play area. Nice to have options! Tyson park has restrooms and good exposure to the beach as long as attention is paid to the cars that cruise the Strand.
