Summer is a wonderful time to watch the beautiful sights of piers.140728110604-piers-12-scheveningen-horizontal-gallery

This year marks the 200th anniversary of UK’s Ryde Pier. Meanwhile, the historic Pier A of New York is reportedly going to reopen. This structure opened in 1886. It was later on closed in 1960. It is now part of the National Register of Historic Places.

For the spirit of piers, here are the most beautiful piers in the world:

  1. Umhlanga Pier in Durban, South Africa. This is a wonderful place to take photos. Besides its beauty, it is also very useful as it serves as an extended underground culvert that disposes the excess rainwater from the land to the ocean to avoid flooding.140725170256-piers-10-umhlanga-horizontal-gallery
  2. Rotonda a Mare in Senigallia, Italy. The name translates to “circular pier” in English. It used to be a World War II military warehouse. It was built back in 1923. Here you can see a beautiful mosaic created by Enzo Cucchi in the entrance.140725165759-piers-8-rotonda-horizontal-gallery
  3. Clevedon Pier in Somerset, UK. This is the most beautiful pier in England, at least Sir John Betjeman, an English poet. This is the only intact Grade 1 pier in UK.140725164749-piers-4-clevedon-rocks-horizontal-gallery
  4. Kastrup Pier in Kastrup, Denmark. You can take a dip in the outdoor swimming area in this pier. It is made out of water resistant azobe wood. It gives incredible curved wooden walls that illuminate the area. Try skinny-dipping here.140725165321-piers-6-kastrup-horizontal-gallery
  5. Huntington Beach Pier in California. This is the longest pier in the west coast of US extending up to 560 meters. Go to any of the Hollister stores to see a beautiful view of the pier.140725165127-piers-5-huntington-horizontal-gallery
