    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.

    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.

    An octagonal Mediterranean-style building sits at the end of this 928-foot pier that, in the 1940s, was a mecca for a new sports craze: surfing. Read more

    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!

    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.

    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.
