One of the most unique features of Pacific Beach is the pier. Crystal Pier, as it’s called, is not only a structure to walk out on but also a place to vacation. Since 1927 people have been traveling from all over the world to unpack and relax in the cottages that line both sides of the pier. It has truly become a beach lover’s haven and quite the unique experience. The cottages have kitchenettes, private patios, and individual parking. Crystal Pier even provides gated key entry and night security for your comfort and safety.
