The "new" Pismo Beach Pier was dedicated last year after a complete rebuild to upgrade and meet modern safety standards. It replaced an earlier one that was constructed in 1924, with major repairs twice at the end from storm damage in the early '80s. The new one matches the former one in footprint including the unique "diamond" patterns. Whether you are into fishing or just strolling, a visit to the pier gives you a beautiful perspective up and down the coastline and a great spot for watching whales, sunsets, or maybe just each other. Parking can be challenging in the summer, but the lot ajaccent to the Pier usually proivdes spaces. Surrounding restaurants, beach equipment rental shops, and clothing stores are right there to meet your needs. The Pier itself is free and welcoming year 'round. See you there!

Worth a walk .... The pier is long and wide, allowing you to watch surfers as they catch waves. Pismo Beach is also quite large with soft sand and plenty of space. Public bathrooms aren’t kept very clean but you can grab a coffee or something to eat at a nearby restaurant and use their bathrooms if needed. Metered parking is available along nearby streets and in a parking lot by the pier ($2 per hour).

We stopped of in Pismo enroute to santa Barbara. We walked the pier and it was interesting to watch the locals fish and the surfers. We could've spent hours watching the surfers and the crashing waves and amazing coastline. Wish we could've stayed for sunset
