Check out the tide pools south of the pier. At the south end of the pools, you’ll find the beginning of a concrete walkway that runs south along the oceanfront. The walkway is perfect for a romantic stroll or a casual walk. Locals practice an art known as “rock balancing” along the walk. Check out all of our recommendations of things to do around San Diego.
