    It's gorgeous. Me & my boyfriend went here about a week after I moved to SD. The sun was setting as we walked on the pier. Beautiful.

    This is an amazing experience in a low-key setting. Make an afternoon of hanging at the Pier and beach, then spend the evening on Newport Ave for food and drinks! The Harp and Winstons are always good

    Chill spot for a pier. If you like to fish there is a cafe that sells bait and tackle halfway down the pier. Watch out for seaweed, surfers and seals.

    Walk around the pier at sunset and you might see dolphins! But be sure to bring a blanket.

    Don't feed the seagulls, attracting them may be a shitty experience.
