Looking for a short, but memorable, outing? Don’t miss Ocean Beach Municipal Pier. At 1971 feet it’s the longest concrete pier on the West Coast and it provides plenty of photo opportunities along this easy .6 mile walk all the way and back.
Things to Do
- Enjoy the view!
- Watch the surfers
- Talk to people fishing (or rent equipment and do some fishing yourself, no license required on the pier)
- Explore the tide pools
- Enjoy a snack or meal at the cafe

A Fun Tradition!
To celebrate the completion of the city’s Junior Lifeguard Program participants get the opportunity to jump off the pier and swim back to shore. (Normally strictly forbidden.)
