Tonight after dinner, we walked down to this little gem and decided it was a highlight of our trip. While the sun was setting, the horizon line lit up in the most brilliant orange, contrasting with the pale blue ocean. The pier was illuminated by all its lights and all we could do was sit and drink it all in.... More

This is quite a busy place!! A very wide assortment of people for sure. On a recent visit, there were so many people with pop up's for shade, you could barely walk. If you do not like crowds,don't go. Fun to people watch.

I liked the yoga class at the beach, beautiful views of dolphins early in the morning. Great to walk along the shore and run. It was clean and has restrooms for convenience.

I love going to the beach for different reasons. I came here to clear my head , play inthe sand, and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. I liked the fact that it was so close to the transit center cuz all i had to go was get off the meterolink and walk there.

Long staircase leads you from the street above. Nice seating areas and bathrooms. Clean beach with lots of seating. Take your sand chairs, sand toys, and boogie boards. Pay parking. Those with disability placards park free with sign displayed.

A cement surface and hand rails are needed. Children should not walk on the present pier. Their are no benches to sit at, only the cement wall.
