“Nice views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

It's a pretty walk up to the end of the pier. On the sunny Thanksgiving Day, there were even a few surfers.

“Watch the surfers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This was a great place to watch surfers, but it was nothing exciting otherwise. Although the Christmas tree made of string lights was a nice touch (at the end of the pier).

“Popular place to surf”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The pier draws plenty of tourists as well as local surfers. This area is dotted with small businesses that cater to those looking for souvenirs and quick food. There is no fine dining in the immediate area.

“Close by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Excellent clam chowder at Chele's. Fun shops. Parking at the pier is limited and you have to pay but we didn't mind. Nice visit.

“Crowded like a little Pier 39 in SF”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

There are a lot of shops in a small area including restaurants.. There are bike rentals as well as banana bike (easy to ride on the sand!) rentals. It's worth a visit but very conjested due to the fact that so much is located in a small area.
