About Santa Cruz Wharf in Santa Cruz, California
The Santa Cruz Wharf, once known as the Pleasure Pier is an enjoyable pier. Once part of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, it was built in 1906 for passengers from speedboats on Monterey Bay to disembark. The pier carried water lines for the Plunge, an indoor saltwater swimming pool that closed in 1960. The Pleasure Pier and Plunge were demolished together and the pier has since been rebuilt and is now known as the Santa Cruz Wharf.
This gorgeous wooden pier is the longest ocean pier on the entire Pacific Coast. At 2745 feet long, it is over a mile to walk to the end and back. The next longest California piers are all under 2000 feet.
With approximately nine bars and restaurants that include long time locals, Dolphin Restaurant (in existence on the pier since 1963), and Stagnaro Bros. Restaurant and Fish Market. From Mexican to Italian, seafood to salads and sandwiches, the entire family can enjoy casual dining or couples can spend a day or a night time stroll and dinner with a view at the Santa Cruz Wharf.
