Loved walking Ventura Pier on our trip to California. A couple nice local restaurants right by the beach. Old-fashioned boardwalk pier out to the ocean. Took advantage of it for a morning and evening walk from our hotel. Beautiful view of the shore from the pier.

I've visited this location several times. The sunrises and sunsets are beautiful here. There is a bike/walk path that goes north and south from the pier. The beach is nice and not as crowded as other spots. Easy paid parking lots.

They claim it is the longest in California. It is a great place for a walk. Great views. Easy access. There is a restaurant and quick taco place on the pier.

nice pier to be on. Great views and good sea food but expensive. We thought we would get a deal on food. it was not as spectacular as expected. The walk on the pier was great, weather was nice and the atmosphere is not festive but there were a lot of fisherman enjoyed fishing on it.

This was a pier like any other pier. It was long and it had a shop and a couple of restaurants. I just relaxed on the pier and ate at the Beach House Fish Deck. I enjoyed the food. I had a burrito and coconut shrimp.

Great place for adults as well as children, and the food just out of sight, the best Halibut you could ever expect to eat, super place for taking photo's, also a great Ice cream shop, but we warned, unless you have a big belly, order the small cone, because they give you a large serving. Nice place to spend the... More

Nice 1/4 mile walk to the end or so. Planks fairly even minimal trip hazards. Can be windy and cooler as you go farther out. Great stop and Some restaurants on the Pier

Walked the pier at night with my 2 daughters it was beautiful but chilly. Glad we had our jackets. Homeless seem to be there either for the night or just fishing. Don't know how long they are allowed to be there. We weren't bothered by them and we felt safe. Went back the next day for sunset.

One of my favorite places to take a walk. You can make it as long or as short as you like. There are benches, yummy food and locals. C Street surfing is the best!

It was great to walk around, watch the sunset. I liked it all nothing I didn't like. The kids liked watching the people fish. And run around.
