I caught a sunrise here and loved it. There was a surf competition going on that was fun to watch as well. It's a great and safe beach for your family too. The seashells are much better here than at any of the other beaches I went to as well if your children are into that thing. Loved taking photos here too. Awesome pier and beach.

Love this area. Awesome shops and restaurants, and the bike path feels like it goes on forever. Uber will be your friend here though, parking is tough, especially in the summer!

Huntington Beach has come a long way from even 10years ago. There are shops, restaurants, bars and really anything you can think of. With new promenades and places to relax, chill and have a drink, it's becoming an even better beach town. Parking is tough in the summer, so get there early and don't hesitate to go down some side streets to find parking. Bring a great attitude and sense of adventure and have a great time.
