Ocean Beach Pier Tours

Ocean Beach Pier

Between the South Mission Jetty and Pacific Beach Point stretch 3 miles (5 kilometers) of pure, unadulterated sun-kissed southern California beach scene. The center of this scene is Ocean Beach Pier, the largest concrete pier on the West Coast, perfect for strolling, fishing, and just watching the waves.

Amid the swimsuit-clad crowd and the anglers, Ocean Beach Pier invites people-watching. Along the pier, you’ll find a café, benches, and bait and tackle shops should you want to try your luck with the fish. Under the pier, skillful surfers slalom the pilings.

Ocean Beach Pier is part of Ocean Beach, San Diego’s most bohemian seaside community. You can get tattooed, shop for antiques, and walk into a restaurant barefoot. Ocean Front Walk bristles with joggers, in-line skaters and cyclists. Back from the beach, Mission Boulevard consists of block after block of surf shops, burger joints, and beer busts.

Practical Info

Ocean Beach Pier lies southwest of downtown San Diego, just across the San Diego River from SeaWorld. The area is best accessed by car. After you visit Ocean Beach Pier, spend some time strolling Ocean Beach.

If you’re here on a Wednesday afternoon, stop by the Ocean Beach farmers market.
