There is not much to do on the pier but there is two restaurants and lots of beautiful views of the ocean all around. Nice place to take family to walk around and enjoy the views of the ocean and the sounds of the waves.

The Malibu pier is nice, it has a great view, but the beach was not that exciting, when we got to the beach next to the pier we wanted to get into the sea but there was a warning sign that said the sea was contaminated and swimming was banned, at least you were surfing. So we wanted to rent... More

Perfect spot for an organic but delicious lunch. Great food, staff and wonderful view! Also a top spot to enjoy a drink in the sun. Highly recommended!

If you're looking for a lot of activity, go to Santa Monica & not Malibu. However, if you want a nice quite place & like to walk the pier, I recommend this pier. Be prepared to spend some money for parking & food while there. Both are a little pricey.

quite clean crowd free....as the sun goes down the sharks come in to feed. Spent many a night and day fishing this great pier.....usually no body else was there but it was January to May (best time to visit) shark fishing was great (catch and release only) you just have to watch your hand as they like to turn around...

The trip from LA to Malibu is very nice, do expect traffic as you head toward Malibu as there was road construction in Oct. 2014. Once you arrive at Malibu Pier, expect a very laid back stroll. It is beautiful and low key, especially compared to Santa Monica Pier. You can have a nice lunch on the pier, or maybe... More

Just to stand on the pier and gaze out to sea was brilliant. We did this on our last day in CA and watched surfers and swimmers and wished like anything that we could stay longer. Simple gifts

Not as many shops as I thought it would have. Nice to have a little walk and to grab something to eat.

This is a great place to view the ocean and enjoy the fresh breeze. Didn't eat at the restaurant but will the next time around, the gift shop at the end is really cool and the custom made surfboards made us want to hit the water.
