a must when in Santa Cruz.
In two spots far out on the southern side of the wharf there are stairs hidden out of the way that let you down to water level. Sea lions lay about there you can get inches away and face to face with
Riva has the best fish, and even if you don't go for dinner - get the gelato at the gelato bar on the left as you go in the door. FABULOUS!
Saw sea otters today. Jellyfish in the summer.
Go down the stairs on the opposite side of the road from the Stagnaro Brothers restaurant to get the best view of the sea lions.
Great weather right now, arcade is still open late. Boardwalk closed. Lots of renovation at the boardwalk and streets.
Make it out to the end of the wharf to watch sea lions through the open cut-outs. Also, about halfway down on the south side (facing the Boardwalk) there is a platform that the sea lions hang out on.
Yep summertime so going to be busy! We try to avoid it until Oct. Love the Wharf though! Stagnaros at the end & Gilbert's my faves!
Make sure to stop off at Gilda's Restaurant! Super cheap and Super delicious!
Had great fish & chips at Miramar Fish Grotto! Wasn't greasy, but tender and crispy on the outside.
Firefish! Pricey but worth it! You have to go there at least once!
Calamari and fries, ocean view, surf and relax!
Marianis has best confections. Lots of starving pelicans some getting pushy
The sea lions are awesome!
Try to spot the sea lions napping beneath the pier!
Nice atmosfhere 🙏 ocean,beach,surfing,peoples
Seal watching at it's best!
The sea lions here are excellent
Stuffed salmon was very good!!
This is really a surprisingly nice walk. Metered parking available just outside, but parking is pretty reasonable so just drive in if you don't feel like walking. Sea Lions swim right under the pier
Best chowder Stagnaro's, best burger and pesto pasta the Dolphin, best fresh fish and zuchinni sticks Riva's
Nice boardwalk. Will definitely come back and ride the big rides
Gotta go to stagnaros best sea food
go to the very end to see the seals...
Get a table by the window @ woodies for some of the best views of the seals,surfers and sea life!!
Don't leave your camera in the car. You could miss nice photo shots.
Lots and lots of sealions underneath the wharf. Beautiful place. Stores too expensive
Eat at Gilda's for breakfast only. Not great for lunch or dinner.
The seals are adorable but keep your hands to yourself!
Ride the Giant Dipper, awesome drops and dips. There's also a pretty view of the pier and beach while climbing to the top.
"Make it to the end of the pier, where open sections of the wharf allow for great views of sea lions hanging out on pilings below." http://buff.ly/VL0pCo
Drive to the end- usually more available parking.
SIt on the roof at Stagnaro's for great drinks and an awesome view!
There are almost always sea lions hanging out at the end of the wharf - look down!
Boring place, really
free parking, nice beach and reasonably priced motels
Don't bother eating at stagnaros- try another instead. Food is bland and overcooked.
Man, you can see the boardwalk. That place is so cool.
Get the fried calamari at Dolphin restaurant at the end of the wharf!
Great weather this week. Boardwalk open late. Good week in Santa Cruz.
Vino Prima Wine Bar is a must! It's almost at the end of the wharf across the walkway from Olita's Cantina! Go there! The owners are awesome and the wines....divine! :)
Si cena prestissimo, alle 22 non si trova nemmeno un bar aperto per bere una birra
В конце ноября здесь особенно много птиц и морских львов.
