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.

  • It was so much fun to watch the surfers from the pier. Such beautiful sunset views. Very clean. Cant wait to go back when in vaca again. 
  • The pier walk is lovely, you see a lot of people fishing, looks like for restaurants more than pleasure, but it's nice to see, there is a restaurant on the end called Ruby's I believe, it's expensive ...  read more »
  • Walked out on a windy October day. Lots of people and great views of the ocean and people surfing below. 
  • Awesome!!! You can fish off the pier with no license, Ruby's Diner is always great if you get a window seat you can usually see a pod of dolphins go by, a few cute shops and always fun watching the surfers.
  • Huntington Beach is a great place for camping, bonfire and surfing! Not as adventurous? Walking around, people watching and admiring the sunset are also perfect activities! There is a wide and huge area to enjoy the beach and scenery. Aside from that, the Pacific center provides more retail and dining options as well as night life! Huntington Beach Pier is currently hosting the Huntington Beach Open, a world-class beach volleyball tournament where Olympic hopefuls are qualifying for Summer Olympics at Rio. 3 Huntington Beach fun facts: 1.

Huntington Beach has the only dog beach in Orange County that allows the canines to run free of their leashes while they are enjoying their time in the sun.
  • I really love this place, but I'm not sure why everyone loses their minds over it. The breakfast is great, the location ideal, the staff is super friendly and the prices are more than reasonable. I can safely say there isn't a bad item on the menu, but we're not talking about breaking new ground on the breakfast front. Everything on the menu is fresh, but it's not inspired. It's a great breakfast/lunch spot with super comfortable seating indoors and an amazing patio out front. Yes, it's a really nice place, everyone working there makes you feel incredibly welcomed, but it's just breakfast. With that said, what are you waiting for, run before there's a line for a seat. (FYI, great counter seating.)
  • It always a beautiful day at Huntington beach. Beautiful sky and amazing view. Endless area to walk and play. Surf and swim. Ample of parking and people walking about.
  • Beautiful pier, lots of people watching. Vollyball players everywhere, surfers, hippies. As cliche as you can get. Sandys is a great spot for breakfast, plus all the people watching, bonus!
