    You can walk along the boardwalk for hours admiring the sunset and huge homes! Beach is clean and family oriented! One of my new faves!

    If you are a surfer, this is the place to be. Great for people watching and lazy walks. The sunset is a must see. Make sure you bring a sweater as it gets quite windy. Good restaurants near by.

    Nice spot if your lady wants to hang on the beach while you're surfing. North or south side of the pier, depending on tide and swell. Cool spot also to snap some surfer's pictures from the pier.

    Chilled this AM, post-4th revelling. Barricades in place on bike path already, for the neutralized pier section. Just slow way down, be safe, walk the bike, and make your fellow cyclists look good :-)

    A great place to shoot pictures, especially near sunset. With the ocean, the setting sun, and the ability to use the "open shade" under the pier, I always get a good shot.

    I just love this beach! Beautiful weather, and not crowded at all...even in summer. Make sure you bring a sweater because it gets windy and cold.

    Take a stroll to the end of the pier and visit the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab & Aquarium, a museum with exhibits dedicated to California aquatic life.

    A beautiful place to watch surfers, people fishing from the pier and enjoy the ocean. There is a cafe on the pier to grab coffee if it is cold.

    Beautiful Sunset over the Pacific Ocean. The walk path by the houses is pure cuteness. California chill all the way!

    If the Beach Boys sang about it, this beach must be good. Walk down the pier and check out the mini-aquarium for a break.

    Watch out for parking lots that have tiny signs that say head in only. We backed in and got a dang ticket cause we didn't notice the signs.
