The Huntington Beach Pier is a great spot to catch the sunset with plenty of food spots nearby. Enjoy good weather year-round. Surfers welcome. 

The Huntington Beach Pier is a great spot for a multitude of activities. If you're looking to bodysurf, surf, swim, jog, or just chill, this is the spot for you. There's plenty of a restaurants nearby, making it the perfect weekday/weekend getaway. 

I frequent this location to shoot sunsets by the pier. Overall, it's a nice clean beach thats great for hanging with friends and family.

Awesome Place

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.

Great day trip

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!

Cool Surrounding Area

Lots of cool shops and bars down main st. Beautiful soCal beach too!
