Crystal Pier
Sept 28, 2011 Sandi Whitteker

Crystal Pier

Crystal Pier, Pacific Beach, CA

This is a beautiful pier, constructed entirely of wood, and large enough to accommodate
10 motel cottages. Built in 1927, it originally sported a midway and a dance room with a
cork-lined dance floor. But this was not to be, as marine borers nibbled at the pilings, the pier
was closed for repairs, and reopened as we see it today, with cottages and a promenade deck.

other sizes: small medium original
