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.

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.

Visiting the pier is a great, basically free, way to visit Malibu. You can see the beautiful views, look down in the water, watch the fisherman, and maybe see a seal. There are at least 2 restaurants on the pier and several accross the street, if you want to catch a meal. You can park along the road for free... More

We drove through Malibu 27 miles looking for the rich and famous, didnt see anyone but it was a lovely drive. Make sure you stop and walk onto the beaches to look back at the beach houses, they are amazing. Sat on the Pier watching the sun set watching the local surf, a memory that I will never forget, it...
