San Francisco Bay from End of Pier 7 - San Francisco visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'San Francisco Bay from End of Pier 7' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from California.
On the quieter eastern harbour front, south of the popular Fisherman's Wharf area is Pier 7. This 900ft long pier is used for fishing and as a quiet place for peaceful walks, popular with locals as it is sufficiently distant enough from Pier 39, the central tourism attraction nearby.
Lined with elegant Victorian wrought iron work railings and lamplights, this pier has an 'old-world' feel and is a favoured spot to 'get away from it all' for those wishing the tranquility of an early morning or sunset evening stroll by the Bay without jostling through crowds. The cable car runs along next to the head of the pier making this easily accessible and well worth a stop to take in the panoramic Bay views in peace.
