This is a very nice pier. I do a lot of traveling, and we see a lot of piers. This pier was well lit with light posts and no shortage of benches to sit and enjoy. I would tell you to dress warmly as the wind is a bit much coming off the bay. Assuming you can handle that, you... More

Nice Wharf is especially for photography lovers, with good views of the harbor, downtown, the skyline and the Bay Bridge. It is a very strategic point for good shots and a nice walk.

This is a nice pedestrian walking pier that gives a good view of the eastern waterfront. Probably one of the nicest piers for pedestrians on the eastern waterfront (pier 14 is good too).

Pier 7 is just that - a long, wide pier. But, there is a hidden, understated flare to it. With benches on each side and street lights dotting it all the way to the end, it can be very romantic for a stroll, especially in the evenings. The views of downtown are also nice from here. You can see the... More

It's your basic pier. You can look at the water or throw things in the bay or dive in if you feeling coltish.

Pier 7 is a simple finger pier but it provides some beautiful views of the back, especially at night.

A walk along the pier is a lovely way to see the city and the bay. It is very peaceful and has benches to sit and rest after a day of walking.

Pier 7 is an absolute must if you love great food, great views, great service - it doesn't get any better than this. From the oysters to the steaks to the wine, it's all here and then some. The service is friendly and fast. Yes, you will definitely drop some cash here - but it's worth every penny. And what's... More

Pier 7 is THE place that provides a obstacle-free view towards the harbour front and the bridge. It is not as crowded as Ferry Building. I would recommend that instead of eating at Ferry Building, to-go and eat it here. If the weather permits, sit back relax and enjoy the view. It is quiet; an escape from the hustle and... More

This pier seems to be mostly used by fishermen. Tourists come and go but it's pretty peaceful to just sit on a bench and enjoy the ocean and the birds.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
