We were staying nearby, and walked out on the pier at first light, at sunset, and after sunrise. All very enjoyable. Friendly fisherpeople.

I had not been down to the pier before - don't miss out! I was there to catch the train to LA, and grabbed a quick bite and cold drink, most enjoyable and great view for sure! Fun little spot.

The pier is an amazing place to go at night. I suggest anywhere between 6 and 7:30pm to chill, hang out, eat, and watch an amazing sunset!
