  • Visiting from MO and wanted to watch/listen to the ocean. Went to the pier and spent 1.5 hrs watching volleyball and surfers. Quite entertaining. Pier was clean and enjoyed no skateboarders. Great way...  more »
  • The pier does not offer much more than an opportunity to walk out on the pier.But Manhattan beach offers one of the surroundings's more laid back atmosphere  more »
  • Manhattan Beach is beautiful, but it’s hard to resist the draw of the pier. You’ll be rewarded with great views on a ‘not too long’ of a walk. Relax, breathe, and soak in the view!  more »

  • Out for a jog on the beach and came across a model shoot under the pier. Good timing! There were about 20 Bud Light volleyball nets set up, so either I missed something cool earlier in the day, or I'll be missing something cool tomorrow. I love this area! Hot chicks jogging, biking and roller-blading.
  • Its a beach. Its covers everything. Fun and awesome place to be. Dont miss it. Loved it as well.
  • loved watching the sunset here. there is plenty of parking in the neighborhood, and the beach/pier are just steps away. i visited on a friday night and the place was pretty busy, but not too crowded that you couldn't find your own spot to sit and soak up the painted sky. the beach is just a couple blocks from shops and restaurants, so you have everything you need for a relaxing night in one spot. only downside is if you have at&t, you don't get good signal on the beach. but put away your electronics and take some time to just enjoy the roar of the sea and that salty ocean breeze.
  • Beautiful ocean views, clean sands, safe and peaceful neighborhood full of upper middle class residents and gorgeous homes. Highly recommended.
  • Very clean and great views. It looks like they will be renovating the aquarium on the pier soon so it should be awsome
