“This is what a warf should look like”

In my minds eye, if you look warf up in a dictionary you will see a picture of the Santa Cruz warf. A fun walk and my recommendation for lunch on the warf is Stagnaro Bros. By far, the most traditional, with old school prices, in fact I have no idea how they keep prices so low in these times. Any time you go in for lunch or dinner, it's full with locals. That says it all. Take time on the warf for the seals and surfers, so fun, so relaxing. Happy travels, trip advisor friends.

I recommend seeing the wharf in Santa Cruz. In addition to great restaurants, it's a hoot to watch the birds and sea lions. We visited it several times this trip to see the wildlife and have dinner. There is a parking fee if you drive out on the wharf; but it's very reasonable. The wharf roadbed is not in very good shape, but you don't notice it that much while walking (just driving).

The image of a group of 50 seals floating side by side will stay at the end of the pier will stay with me for years.

This Wahf has some good food and restaurants. It is a nice walk and has some great happy hours , You can visit the seals that are under the wharf or just the stores . You can fish off the wharf if you like or just have some fun.

When the weather is great almost every wharf is nice to visit but looking in greater detail we can only say: it is okay, nothing special, one of the many wharfs we know.
It has all the elements but nothing special. It is a bit old and some maintenance won't hurt. Restaurants and souvenir shops are on the one side and boats to rent on the other side. The one attraction here is the presence of the sea lions. You can both hear and smell them.
