Ocean Beach Pier to Pescadero Beach Professional Review and Guide
"Ocean Beach extends from the San Diego River floodway to the bluff-backed beach off of Pescadero Avenue. Ocean Beach Pier lies in between, a T-shaped fishing pier at the foot of Niagara Avenue. It is the longest pier on the west coast, extending 2,100 feet over the water. The shoreline between the pier and Pescadero Beach has a water-carved rock shelf extending out to sea, with small pocket beaches, rocky crevices, and tidepools. The beach is backed by 30-foot bluffs with five sets of stairways that descend to the rocky beach. The whole day can easily be spent exploring the various rock ledges and tidepools. This low-tide hike begins at the pier and follows the flat rock ledges and seawalls to the stairway beneath Pescadero Avenue."
