Owner description: Longest wooden pier on California coast at 1941 feet, 1/3 of a mile, there is a convenience store half way out stocked floor to ceiling with fishing pole rentals, bait, tackle, snacks and beverages, and a whole lot of souvenir's stuffed into a 7X15 foot space. Ruby's 50's diner is located on the end with breakfast to burgers and a view to die for. The pier it self is open 24 hours a day 7days a week

This is a popular surf area and with decent waves you can watch a lot of surfing action close up from midway out on the pier. You can rent tackle if you want to try your hand at fishing off the pier, and there are bathrooms about midway out also. If it is nice weather here is usually something going on here that makes the trip worthwhile besides the beautiful view

Pier was full of visitors and fisher persons. Nothing special otherwise. Good for a walk, but was a little crowed when we visited.

Don't miss this when you are in the area. There are lots of interesting places in the area, and the harbor view is picturesque.

Well being in California we had to go to the longest pier in North America and have a lunch at the restaurant. So we did... Well the view was great and the walk was awesome. The restaurant was busy...only one on the pier. Its a cute place, girls are dressed with this little 1940 suit...very cute and kinda sexy i have to say. The menu is very basic.. Burgers, burgers and burgers,,,did i say burgers? So we did order burger with fries and some drinks..coke of course! It was good... Service was good, view was good, price was to high.. Good experience in general.
If you have other things to do..please don't spend 30$ on burgers at the pier. Must be another good place somewhere.

Enjoyed a nice walk out to the end. People fishing over the side. Lovely spot and free parking can be found within half a block.
Looking down at the sandy beaches and the surfers trying o catch a wave,
Very peaceful way to spend a few hours.
