Nice, peaceful, beautiful day. Fisherman on the pier, sight seers were great! Had a 5 hour layover, took a cab from LAX, 28$ walked the beach and had a few brews at the shark cove! Cab drivers where nice and always took the short way!

It's an old pier that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. It has numerous warning signs about what you cannot do there and a tacky aquarium at the end. You can buy some snacks and food. It might be fun during a storm. You can look back at how the coastal people live in cave dwelling fashion on the shore.... More

Level, wide open walkway. Not crowded, great views of the Pacific Ocean. Well worth the walk to the end of the pier.

Great pier. Lots of resturants and fun to choose from. So much to do - all right on the beach. Any type of food you can think of. Very safe walk day or night.

Lovely little pier. Not too crowded but lively all the same. Well worth a visit night or day. We did both & enjoyed it twice as much.

Quick stop on the pier. It was cold and cloudy, but it was still fun to watch the surfers try to grab some waves. Lots of cute shops along the road also

This pier has a small aquarium at the end of the pier. Its something to do for the walk from one end to the other. usually in the summertime there can be vendors giving away free samples to get some advertising. There are major events around the pier like volleyball plenty of sandlots near the base of the pier.

We loved the pier. It was clean and you could watch people on the beach and people attempting to surf. The water is so very clear! Amazing. We were very impressed the cleanliness of the pier.
