The town of Ocean Beach was laid out and named in 1888. It is the ultimate beach town and offers visitors many fine ways to spend the day. Swimming, surfing, body surfing, tanning, kite flying, tide pools, fishing, sailing, water-skiing, jet skiing, snorkeling, kayaking, bonfires, star gazing and sunset watching are a few activities Ocean Beach has to offer. Our claim to fame is the fishing pier just a couple of blocks to the south. At 1,971 feet, the Ocean Beach Pier is supposed to be the longest concrete pier in the world. It has a T-shape at the end extending 360 feet to the south and 193 feet to the north end. The south end extends into the Point Loma kelp beds and has a view of the tide pools and Sunset cliffs. A perfect spot to watch sea life or the sun fade into the ocean.
