Pismo Beach Pier in Pismo Beach, California

The icon of Pismo Beach (once know for clams), is the wooden pier that is visible from many of the cliff-side hotels and resorts where guests can climb down sets of stairs to the Pismo Beach City Beach and make their way to the base of the pier. From flying kites, to watching seagulls, surfing to swings, kids and adults can stand on the pier and look out on the ocean or nearby hills, or walk under the pier to get up close and personal with the waves.

Free pier fishing, special events and a great vantage point are all enjoyed at the Pismo Beach Pier today. Known for its beach breaks, the Pismo Beach Pier is one of Central Coast’s most popular surfing locations. The pier is lit at night, allowing surfers a spot to enjoy night time surfing. Situated in the lee of Point San Luis and San Luis Obispo Bay, the pier’s surfing location is generally less windy than the more exposed Oceano to the south, but bigger than the Avila Beach area to the north.
