Miller's pier (Russian: при́стань Ми́ллера, Pristan Millera), is a railway station at the quay in Sestroretsk Kurort, Russia. The 50-metre (160 ft) pier was constructed from boulders dumped into the Gulf of Finland. In time, the harbour acquired the name "Miller's Harbour".

On the bay coast, in 1875, a branch line was laid to the landing stage, and the first structures were erected on it in the same year.[1] In 1899–1900 the Kurort's esplanade was opened, and the line was surrounded with two low enclosures.[1]
