oceanographic research pier
Not a public pier, it does open one day a year to public access. Best visited at low tide, Dike Rock Tide Pools is a rocky area just to the north of Scripps Pier in La Jolla (check tide report). The pier and surrounding waters is located within the La Jolla Underwater Park. The oceanographic research pier was built in 1987-88 to replace the old Scripps Pier built in 1915. Scripps Pier is a familiar landmark located between La Jolla Shores and Blacks Beach, California’s infamous nude beach. Scripps Pier spans 1,090 feet, built of reinforced concrete and Scripps Institute of Oceanography owns and operates the pier.
