  • Pillar Point Harbor is a great place to buy fresh fish straight from the fishermen. You can also rent kayaks and SUP from a couple locations or launch your boat from their ramp. There are some great local restaurants serving lunch and dinner. The harbor employees are very friendly and are trying hard to keep this place pretty despite the huge number of visitors. As a matter of fact they partner with a local non profit called Pacifica Beach Coalition and they lead beach cleanups on a monthly basis.
  • Hike up to Pillar Point and find that small cove a little tucked away with the bench. Great view. The California coast line is truly a beauty.
  • Great place to buy fresh-caught seafood literally off the fishing boat! It's kind of a luck-of-the-draw thing as to what gets in and when, but there is a FishLine app and website that may be helpful.
  • Good quiet fishing spot with bathrooms and food nearby. Easy to stay here all day!
  • Great place to get seafood fresh from the boat!
