Imperial Beach, Things To Do
Imperial Beach is one of the last untouched beach towns in Southern California,
and has been titled Classic Southern California®. The town is best known
for miles of uncrowded beaches, big surf, the IB Fishing Pier and unparalleled
open space and wetlands teeming with wildlife. There is much to see and do in
Imperial Beach, take advantage of the following ideas.
IB beaches are a great place to surf, boogie board,
sunbath, swim and play volleyball.
The 1,500 square foot Imperial Beach Pier is a great
place fish, stroll, see surfing from above or grab a meal at the popular Tin
Fish restaurant and watch the sun set.
Enjoy Pier Plaza Park (a true outdoor surfing museum)
boarding the Pacific Ocean at the base of the IB Pier. At the center of the
park stands IB’s signature art piece called “Surf Henge”, a 20’ tall
translucent acrylic representation of surfboards stuck in the sand created
by artist Malcolm Jones. Check out the big wave surfing history that’s
explained in some detail on plaques placed next to ten benches resembling
surfboards that are spread throughout the Pier Plaza. The concrete seawalls
surrounding the park are adorned with exquisite glass and tile work called
“illuminations” by artist Mary Lynn Dominguez.
