Enjoy a Scenic Stroll
OB Pier is a great place for a stroll. You can walk to the end of the pier and enjoy the surrounding view of Ocean Beach coastline and The Strand, further north.
The view of the sunsets from the end of the pier, make the pier one of the best romantic destinations along the coast. At the foot of the pier, just south, are tide pools and rocks—a very photogenic spot, and good for walking and sitting back to watch the surf, sky and pier.

OB Pier has public restrooms, a bait and tackle shop, a cafe, stations for cleaning fish, lights, and benches. There’s a small parking area near the pier with free parking 24 hours a day.
If you’re hungry, you can dine at the Ocean Beach Pier Café, mid point along the pier. The food is good. The restaurant has artifacts and decor reminescent of an old harbor dining setting.
