Piering around Seacliff Beach.

The concrete ship Palo Alto, a World War I supply ship, has lain at the end of the Seacliff State Beach fishing pier near Santa Cruz since it was purposely sunk in 1929. Pier and ship help fishermen get out above deeper water. But 1982 and 1983 stormes damagd the pier, closing it.

Now, after major renovation, the pier and ship have reopened. You can stroll out to watch the colon of brown pelicans living on the bow; or fish for perch, rockfish, or bass (license required).

Nearby, the 26-site RV campground, closed by storm damage in 1983, should open by July ($12 per night with hookups; reserve through Tickertron).

Seacliff State Beach is just south of State Highway 1, 5-1/2 miles east of Santa Cruz; day-use fee is $2 per car.
