Destination guide

Hit up California_s original beach scene

With its laid-back vibes and retro aesthetic, Grover Beach is a Californian gem. Legendary Pismo Beach is just a few miles up the coast which means you're never too far from its bustling wooden pier, colorful clam shacks, and 1950s diners. Beyond the sparkling Pacific coast, Grover Beach serves as a gateway to San Luis Obispo (aka SLO) County, one of California's best wine regions. This means that whether you hit up a local wine store or sip your way through vineyards, the rich reds and zesty whites of the region are always well within reach.

Things to do

A true taste of the county

Thanks to its fertile soil and sultry climate, SLO County produces some of California's best wine. Grover Beach is a great base for exploring the scene, with scores of vineyards dotting Highway 46. Eberle Winery is a top pick, with sweeping views, a sun-drenched deck, and fascinating tours of its wine caves. You'll also find it hard to resist SLO County's glut of artisan olive oil factories, organic cheesemakers, craft breweries, and small batch distilleries. See something you like? With Grover Beach vacation rentals you can stock up on your favorite picks, and enjoy drinks at home while the sun goes down.

Grover Beach is all about fun in the sun, so don't feel guilty about spending your days simply soaking up the rays. Want easy access to the water? From rustic cabins to luxury condos, Grover Beach vacation rentals put you just steps from the sand. If you feel a little restless, nearby Pismo Beach is packed with places to rent wetsuits, surfboards, and SUPs. Sign up for a lesson at the iconic Pismo Beach Surf Shop, or brave the waves solo. If you're lucky you could even spot dolphins frolicking in the waves.


A summer daze in SLO County

Summer sees SLO County drenched in sunshine, with temperatures climbing well into the 80s. It's a great time to swim, sunbathe, and visit local vineyards. December to March is wonderfully quiet, though Grover Beach does receive its fair share of rainfall. Of course, with cozy oceanfront Grover Beach vacation rentals, watching rain storms roll in is an absolute treat. Held every October, the Pismo Beach Clam Festival has been running for over 70 years. Locals celebrate the tasty mollusks with a public clam dig, chowder cookoff, food vendors, and live music.

Natural features

From golden sand to lush grapevines

Grover Beach sits on California's Central Coast, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It's a diverse slice of the Golden State, bordered by sandy beaches on one side and lush wineries on the other. Kids will love the Monarch Butterfly Grove, which serves as a sanctuary for the flocks of butterflies that migrate to Pismo State Beach in the cooler months. Dinosaur Caves Park is another natural highlight, sitting atop a rugged bluff. While there are no actual dinosaur fossils, you'll find scenic trails, grassy picnic spots, and a playground.
