About Santa Cruz Wharf, Santa Cruz

Located between Main beach and Cowell’s beach, the Santa Cruz Wharf is a behemoth of a structure that goes deep into the sea. Sprawling a length of 836 meters, the wharf is the longest on the whole of West Coast. Apart from giving an astounding view of the Pacific waters, the wharf is also home to a number of restaurants, wine tasting rooms, gift shops, small markets and candy shops. A fun activity also to do here is observing the sea lions who climb up to the base of the platforms of the wharf and can be seen lazing around.

Santa Cruz Wharf, Santa Cruz Reviews

  • Beautiful place... Love going for our walk down the pier and listening to the different street musician's... Checking out the beautiful view of the ocean, beach, and horizon... Watching all the different parts of nature like the sea lion's and such... Also many amazing little shops and great restaurants to stop and check out... Can't wait to go back...

  • This is the epicenter of Santa Cruz California coastal experience. Great popular beach nearby and a fantastic amusement park is just a short walk away. The boardwalk has a few nice places to eat as well as typical tourist shops. Plenty seals are generally easy to spot here as they tend to nap under the boardwalk. Some watersports such as kayaking are available here as well. If you are visiting Santa Cruz for the first time then the boardwalk is definitely where you should start.

  • Beautiful restaurant although a little pricey, It's justifiable for its amazing location combined with wide range of fresh sea food. Best time to go would be an hour before sunset! The colours from the water are very vibrant and adds up to the overall dining experience.

  • It only costs a dollar for 20 minutes to park on the wharf, so if you can't find parking nearby, this is a good option. There were so many sardines in the water that the birds, ducks and sea lions were probably so full they didn't need to eat for a while. Instead of people watching, this is a great place to come and look over the railing and watch the ocean come to life. The weather was perfect today, but have been here when it's raining and windy and still beautiful.

  • A great piece of Santa Cruz. Every place on the pier is awesome. Some new, some old. The old time places are still old, but enjoyable to get a taste of Santa Cruz history. I remember going to some of the restaurants as a kid with my grandparents, and they are still there today. I like to support those places the most and hope they stay just the way they are. If you enjoy the smell of the ocean, this is one of the best places to enjoy.
