Most people who plan a vacation to Imperial Beach come to enjoy the city’s 3.5 miles of beach, which is where the annual Sandcastles Event is held in the month of July. In 1989, the Imperial Beach Pier was added to the beach, and it stretches 1,853-feet into the Pacific Ocean. The Imperial Beach Pier is ideal for languid strolls and general sightseeing, and there is a restaurant at its far end for those who want to enjoy ocean views while dining. At the entrance of the Imperial Beach Pier is a Wyland sculpture, which helps to make the pier a featured Imperial Beach California attraction. Wyland, whose full name is Robert Wyland, is a famous marine life artist who began to gain notoriety in the 1970s. His works have inspired many to embrace conservation of the creatures that live in the world’s oceans, and today the Wyland company that bears his name creates works of art that are inspired by its founder. In addition to checking out the Wyland sculpture and grabbing a bite to eat at the restaurant, those heading to the Imperial Beach Pier can also try some pier fishing, which is free.
