I was lucky enough to live there about 16 years ago, so going back and actually see if even better was a treat. The vibe in the area is fantastic. Do yourself a favour hire a bike and ride along the strand up to El Porto and back it is so worth it.

We visited the pier every day of our trip. We shopped there, walked there and ate out there every day. Rented bikes too to be able to go up the coast. Everything was great.

The Pier is well kept, clean and people are verry nice. Parking is metered. The Beach is very nice and the water is clean.

Everyone welcome. Look both ways when crossing bike path. The ocean view will inspire your soul. Grab a sunset:). City keeps bathrooms up.

this beach was extremely clean and easily accessible, the volleyball court they had set up was very inviting and watching the players was a nice touch.

The restaurant plaza at the base of the pier is a better attraction. The pier itself is average. Simple and basic pier with no attractions on the pier.

In the morning, there are folks fishing from the pier. It's interesting to watch them and see what they're doing. We've seen dolphins and seals in the water nearby, and of course the surfers. The pier area is bustling in the afternoon and evening with walkers, joggers, moms with strollers, tourists and partygoers who are going to the various clubs... More
