The pier is long and stretched all the way into the ocean. Even on a cloudy Saturday, the place is packed with fishermen. I was surprised to learn how many are first timer. We saw a lot of people caught crabs. Sea lions are bubbling...More

The Pacifica Municipal Pier is a frequent visit destination of the weekly walks of the Pacifica Promendade. Great! During Whale migration twice each year and usually for several weeks this is a fantastic vantage point for viewing them.

The sun isn't always shining by the time the sun gets low on the horizon, but when you catch a clear day the pier is an amazing spot. If it is high tide, you might get to watch waves crash up on the sea wall...More

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.

The pier area is not as attractive as most of the walking paths in Pacifica. The cliff side path just south of the pier has nice views of the ocean and town, just fifteen minutes away by foot.

This pier stretching out to the waters is kinda like the famous Santa Monica pier way south of the state but without the glitz and glamour. The Pacifica pier has one cafe servicing it and frankly, I don't know its hours of operation. The pier...More
