  • Nice little pier, people fish at the end. There's a compass on the deck of the wharf. Not a lot of shops, I was expecting more. But that's a good thing I suppose, keeps the traffic light and not busy so you're able to get around with relative ease
  • Great place to enjoy the views, particularly when the sun sets, with some nice little shops, and good places to eat. Personally I can recommend the Deep Sea Tasting Rooms; a good glass of wine really sets the mood!
  • O my my . . One of the best places I have visited in CA. . .what a lovely view. . have a look when the sun is gone and the moon comes out. . Casts its shadow in water. . I was bewitched
  • Great place, first time I got to drive on a wooden road. Great view and atmosphere, lots of restaurants that naturally serve mainly seafood.
  • Had a great stop here on the way to Pismo Beach, saw some sea lions swimming around fishermen trying to catch fish. Also a very interesting view of the oil rigs in the distance.
