Once called the Riviera of America, Malibu Pier represents a historical landmark noted for its three-story point break popular with surfers. Only experienced surfers should brave these waves, but visitors will find plenty else to do on the pier. Learn about surf culture at the surf museum, take a boat tour of the coast, or pick up souvenirs from the gift shops. Get onto the water by joining fishing or whale-watching trips. If you do decide to ride the world-famous break, you can rent equipment on site. Malibu Pier is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • Very well kept pier, particularly the public restrooms at the far end! A selection of cafes and shops are available, though perhaps unsurprisingly the eateries are on the pricey side. The settings...

  • The Malibu Pier was very lowkey with some eateries and a quaint shop at the end. My wife didn't want to stop and walk it but I convinced her too and she was really glad. We didn't buy anything...

  • We visited on a very beautiful morning and it was quiet and the atmosphere was fresh. Clean and well maintained premises. So many surfers were practicing their surfing skills on the amazing waves. It is a great and unique experience to stand on this pier and watch the majestic waves in the ocean. Feels like just staying there and to keep watching the the waves. Pleasant weather. Beautiful experience.
  • Really clean beach and pier. You should walk all the way to the front to see amazing view. They have cafe on the pier itself and great outdoor indoor seating with amazing views. Quite a few stairs to access the beach. Parking can be tricky - there is 20$ for the parking at the pier lot but you can try and see if you get street parking to avoid 20$. On the parking they also have restrooms.
  • Amazing place, we stopped by here on our way back to San Francisco. Extremely clean beach and pristine waters. The beach is accessible by the stairs. There’s a flat parking fee of $20 to park by the pier so try finding parking nearby. Restrooms are available.
  • A pretty cool place to watch the blue pacific water and enjoy a walk down the pier. There are plenty of unique shops and restaurants to dine out and the pier itself is not overly crowded and well maintained. We also went underneath the pier where waves crash on a tiny beach.
  • Such a beautiful place! Not as busy as other piers in Southern California. We love to fish, eat a picnic lunch with our children. We also love enjoying the shops and restaurants.
