Big Waves, Big Pictures

Meet at Del Monte Ave at the start of the Municipal Wharf (where Figueroa St. ends and the beach begins).

Situated adjacent to old fisherman’s wharf, this surf spot is perfect for big wave days as it is very protected from dangerous conditions. When it’s 10 foot in the Monterey area, old fisherman’s wharf provides sheltered 2-4 foot surf. This location really works when the tide is high, almost disappearing at low tide. One of the best spots to take pictures of surfers thanks to the wharf’s elevated vantage point.
