“California dreaming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This is exactly what the Beach Boys sang about. Cool beach town, great surf, awesome pier. Fishing on the pier does not require a fishing license.

“Very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

Since the pier has been redone it is very nice and wide. I love walking down it but remember a sweatshirt! It can be quite windy and cold at times.

“Pismo pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

On the pier we enjoyed People watching, and seeing what the anglers brought up on their lines. It's like walking into the ocean without getting wet. You do have to watch your step because of the rough walking surface.
