Select a Date for your trip to Los Osos
Back to Central California Beach Cities.
Los Osos means "The Bears" in Spanish. Despite the name, no bears have been seen in this area for over 100 years so there is no need to worry about encountering one in the countryside.
There are only two roads in or out of Los Osos, South Bay Boulevard and Los Osos Valley Road.
Do a quick search to see specific hotel locations.
During your hotel stay in Los Osos you will be able to spend time exploring the beach as well as several nature preserves.
