Great mid-day stroll on the pier. Enjoyed watching locals fish off the pier and the pelicans perch in hopes of catching lunch.

One of the longest pier we've walked on. It's clean and well maintained. Nice restaurant (Ruby's) at the end with good eats and a view.

The walks on the pier are a must if it is not raining. The people there enjoy the huge pelicans that sit there for handouts.

I love towns with piers! This is a really nice area.. The Top Gun house is across the street from it and there are swings on the beach beside it! YES swings on the beach - Great photo opt!

It was overcast the day we were there, but there were surfers, pelicans and views up and down the coast and cheap parking. Well worth a visit.
