Catch a Sunset at the Imperial Beach Pier

Added by Alex E

Photograph the Imperial Beach Pier at Sunset and head in the water for a swim or a surf. Afterward, grab a beer at Coronado Brewing Company.

From San Diego, head South on Hwy 5 for 12 miles. Take a right on exit 5A for Palm Ave/CA-75. Take CA-75 west for 1.6 miles. Stay on Palm Ave as it splits from CA-75. Take Palm Ave for 1 mile until it reaches the coast. Turn left on Seacoast Dr and take it for 1 mile until you reach the Imperial Beach Pier.

From here, hike along the beach to find the best place to photograph the pier and surrounding area. Sunset allows for the best lighting for shots silhouetting the pier. Once the sun goes down, walk over to the Coronado Brewing Company and grab an ice cold Orange Wit. El Tapatio, as well as several other street locations have amazing tacos and burritos near the pier.
