Great vantage point to see the Bay views. Take photos of beach and mountains. Also watch a surfer or two. We also have seen some large sea turtles swim right up beside the pier.

Enjoyed our visit even in crappy weather. Wish we had brought our lunch. We could have sat at picnic tables on the end of the pier to eat.
