"a short walk on a long pier"
It's a very residential street and certainly looks like an expensive place to live, being so close to a beach and beach-front parks. I only was there during the day on the weekend and it certainly seemed like a pretty busy area. Oh, and the walk down the pier is pretty uneventful. The view of the breakwater to the north is pretty cool and it's eerily bereft of traffic noise at the far end. It's something to do when you're at the beach but would rather explore than laze in the sand.
