Huntington Beach Pier, Huntington Beach
(4.5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
The landmark Huntington Beach Pier stretches 560 m (1,850 ft), making it one of the longest public piers on the West Coast. Stroll down the pier and pop into some of its stores. Watch anglers reel in catches and surfers ride the swells, and you'll see why Huntington Beach is often referred to as Surf City, USA. At the end of the pier, grab some all-American fare at Ruby's Diner. Remember to keep an eye out for dolphins in the distance.

  • There is no better place to watch white male studs surfing their bxtt off than on the pier the wave was good today there's probably 100 people surfing. Also saw a seal. No I'm not gay. 
  • It is a long Pier that traverses the entire beach and allows you to see a lot of people surfing. At the end there is a fast food restaurant. The environment is quiet and safe.

  • I love this beach!!!! It one of my favorites and the most frequent on I go too. Always clean and chill. Great shops and restaurants near by. And they hold the Van's US Open here every years and the fireworks display on the 4th of July is amazing too
  • One of the best piers on the West Coast. Great beaches, great weather great downtown area with lots of restaurants & shops. The traffic & parking are very difficult during peak summer months, so plan accordingly. Not crazy about the huge hotel complexes that keep expanding, but it really is a great area. Lots of events all around the pier... Volleyball tournaments, surf contests, live music, art shows, fireworks, & they just held their inaugural air show, which was awesome.
  • Beautiful beach, great restaurants are nearby. You can enjoy nature. The only problem is parking. I had a hard time getting a place for parking
  • Consistent surf, tough crowd though. Make sure you know what you are doing or else don't even bother paddling out next to the pier
  • Huntington Beach pier is one of the funnest places on Earth surfing skateboarding all kinds of beach activities good shops good prices and good food best place for the US Open good friends.. thank you have a good peaceful visit if you're visiting and respect the locals enjoy
