These airy suites and cottages sit directly on the pier and feature separate living rooms and private patios/decks with beach views. Most units also add kitchenettes.

When it was first built in the late 1920s, the Crystal Pier in San Diego’s Pacific Beach neighborhood offered a classic amusement park setting above the water. At one point there was a Crystal ballroom built at the end of the pier, lasting only three months.
