Pismo Beach is a great little seaside resort and as it is one that is just easy access from LA or SF it is worth the stop for a walk on the beach, out on the pier and with luck lots to look at surfers, whales, dolphins, pelicans and just a pleasant break on the sea. Nice shops and places to eat, drink, buy or stay near by. We found a great little kite shop with gifts etc. run by the O'Neill's that we enjoyed also and great salt water taffy! This was my first stop in Pismo but enjoyed the stop.

The pier was very close to our hotel and it is very wide. The pier is not too long but had several couples walking up and down the length of the pier. Their is a souvenier shop that also sells chips, candy, water and other snacks. Several fisherman were fishing and there were plenty of clean benches to sit on to look out to the ocean or to watch the surfers.

We always take at least 1 walk on the pier when visiting Pismo Beach. There are always surfers to watch, no matter how cold it is. And over the years we have seen, whales, dolphins, seals, pelicans, and seagulls of course, when walking out to the end of the pier. The waves this visit were exceptionally large and noisy, great view.

This pier is a wonderful spot for watching sunsets going down in the bright blue Pacific Ocean. The waves at the pier are great even for surfers. You can even fish off the Pier, I have seen some people catch some great fish out off pier. I am from the area and go to the pier pretty often and it's a must see if you are in town.

The pier and beach are great locations with many great restaurants nearby. A walk trough the area and on the pier and the beach, is a great way to see Pismo Beach, and is a must do when visiting the area.
