Nice spot to park, get out of the car, and walk out over the ocean. Not too far from the airport. Also, not a lot to eat around here.

We went to follow the whales. I found Pacifica, CA to be a very run down area, but expensive for hotels, which was interesting. Pacifica Beach near our hotel was overrun by homeless and it was noisy at night. The pier was very run down,...More

Lots of people fish off the pier but we go just to watch the waves. There is a small coffee shop at the end of it if you get chilled

Pier is a nice pier with people fishing even on a windy cold day. Area around the pier looks run down. Few homes looked ok but did not want to stay long.
