Tons of locals fish here. It's a beautiful long walk through crashing waves. The restaurant at the end is good. The people here are authentic homies. Just love IB. I come here all the time.

Though the day was cloudy, I still had a great time walking out on the pier. I didn't take advantage of it, but there is a restaurant located on the pier. The views from the pier are beautiful and I had a good time enjoying hte pier and beach. There's plenty to do in the neighborhood surrounding the pier and... More

Long walking California beach. Great pier with a restaurant at the end. Lots of locals fishing, did not see anyone catch anything. Reasonable priced parking. Ladies room toilets do not have seats, but you do not have to pay to use them

Apart from a pretty decent view of San Diego there's not really anything to do at or on this Pier. The restaurant st the end of the Pier is kinda dodgy looking & we decided to eat elsewhere (but we are a bit fussy about cleanliness).... Breezy but a nice stroll in a sunny day...

Imperial Beach is the gate way to Coronado from the south side. It is a very nice beach community and tend to be over look by travelers. The pier is a great place to see a nice sun set and to catch the breeze from the ocean and later grab a couple drinks at a hotel and bar near by.

Walking the Imperial Beach Pier is a great way to spend an evening in Imperial Beach. The pier is a great place to watch the surfers and wakeboarders, and to view gorgeous sunsets. There is a small quick-service restaurant at the end of the pier that serves shakes and fries. The crowd is a mix of locals, fishermen, and tourists.

I love Imperial Beach it's a very nice little town. They have done a lot of improvements in the pier. It looks real nice. A park for the kids. A little shopping mall.
