Nice place to go to the beach, walk on pier, fish, have a drink or just sit & people watch. Restaurant is a little expensive but decent.

With taco in hand it was a nice walk out onto the pier. It is nothing else but a nice walk out onto a pier for views. It does that and they do not charge you either. It is an easy walk from downtown and can easily be combined with a walk along the paved promenade too.

The playground is wonderful. Everything is so close to the beach. The parking structure helps the car not to get too hot. Not too many high waves, great for families. We stayed at LaQuinta, only 5 minutes away. The views of the Channel Island were wonderful and the beach was clean and beautiful.

Took a quick trip to the pier, nice, but the wood is starting to show the wear. Great views and we saw a sea lion.

You can see forever! What a great place to take walk and just soak in the sea air and watch the surfers! It was one of the highlights of our trip!

Whenever we visit Ventura, a walk along the Promenede and Pier are a must! The pier provides a great view of the area....fun to see the fishermen and locals/tourists hanging out....along the Promenade you can sit and watch the ocean and check out the surfers for hours! Great people watching! If you don't want to park in the fee parking... More

The restaurants on the pier are great! There are also some nice places a short walk away by the hotels. It's wonderful to take a sunset walk on the pier and then relax at one of the restaurants!

Having seen many California piers, there wasn't much going on here. We walked to the end, it is long, watched the fishermen, and ate lunch there.
