Longest wooden pier on California coast at 1941 feet, 1/3 of a mile, there is a convenience store half way out stocked floor to ceiling with fishing pole rentals, bait, tackle, snacks and beverages, and a whole lot of souvenir's stuffed into a 7X15 foot space. Ruby's 50's diner is located on the end with breakfast to burgers and a view to die for. The pier it self is open 24 hours a day 7days a week

While walking the beach at Oceanside, we "hit" the Pier, Was busy and a lot of fishermen out there trying to score their lunch or dinner........ with some luck. Was fun watching the surfers also.

The entire pier is occupied by fishing people. So, you really have no place to just lean and enjoy the view. Very disappointed. There is only one restaurant at the end of the pier. I am not sure what kind of food it had. No...More

I could stand and watch the surfers and the seagulls for hours. The pier and ocean provided gorgeous views and even a light breeze during this unordinary hot season.
