Beautiful coastline

great beach towns of Southern California, including San Diego, Oceanside and Solana Beach

scenic areas of the coast not viewable by car.

you pass the world famous surfing beach Trestles and then through Camp Pendelton to Oceanside.

North from Los Angeles the Surfliner hugs the coast from Oxnard all the way past Vanderberg Air Force Base. The train passes through Santa Barbara, Gaviota State Beach, Jalama Beach, Santa Maria, Pismo Beach and then on to San Luis Obispo.

On this section of the track, there are miles of pristine coastline that are not accessible by car. After turning inland, the Surfliner travels through oak-covered valleys filled with miles of grape vines until it reaches the rich farmland of Santa Maria Valley.

The line returns briefly to the coast at Pismo Beach and then turns inland along Price Canyon for the final leg of its journey to San Luis Obispo.
