We stopped at the pier for a few hours and watched a surfing competition. We also walked along the pier and through the gift shop for some ice cream. It was a beautiful day and the pier and beach were nice and clean

Pay a few dollars and walk out on the pier and watch the folks fishing. There are also some exhibits in the building and aquariums too.
