A bit of fun and some great restaurants. We had our last meal on the boardwalk before heading back to Australia, we wished we found it sooner.

I couldn't decide if this was a 'working' pier trying to be a tourist destination or a tourist destination that got mixed up with the fishing industry. There are hundreds of private and commercial boats moored within the pier's sheltered marina. The quay-side is lined with fish merchants and quick cheap eateries. The pier itself is a crescent, anchored to... More

This pier is like other piers around the area with restaurants and shops. Restaurants are mostly seafood restaurants. There are also Japanese restaurant and ice cream palour. There are also souvenir shops. There are many local fishing at the pier. I saw a seal by the pier. Parking is not free but reasonable.

This pier is like santa monica pier with shopping and eateries, but without the carnival rides. With regards to the places to eat most are seafood based and range from fish and chips, crabcakes, fried calimari, shrimp, etc. Also, there are fresh fish markets located here. Some other attractions are a high speed boatride, and some rental boats. Access via... More

I've seen the pier change over the years. But, I must say, as I have aged, it is the cleanest and classiest o most of the piers in So. Cal. Authentic feel of fishermen right from the dock adds to the ambience.. My personal favorite restaurant is Old Tonys. Highly Recommended! Beautiful views of the shoreline from San Pedro to... More
