I grew up in southern California and have to say this is one of the best beach towns in Socal. The main attraction is of course the beach, but the reason it gets hype is because the Pier is filled with restaurants, bars, shops, and...More

After sunset the sea lions come in to take the fish too small for the fisherman to keep. Awesome to watch that happening. Great views of the sunset from the pier as well.

Bring your camera, phone or sketch pad. The view is awesome. Take a picture of volleyball players, waves breaking in a gentle curl, or homes that most of us can't afford. Either way, enjoy.

This is a large and well built pier with loads of rules about what you can’t do eg. no bikes, no skateboards, no this no that. But, you can fish here from dawn until 10pm and take up as much space as you like and...More
