We loved walking down the pier and looking down at the water. The surfers are basically right under you.

A classic Southern California pier. Parking can a little more difficult compared to other Southern California Pier's but it is well worth it. It is not as busy or as over run as other piers but there are still great places nearby for some beer or food. There is a small aquarium and coffee shop at the end of the... More

Had some time to kill till our flight late in the evening so we decided to check this place out. It helped that the bus here came right out the front of our hotel. It was pleasant and killed some time but was nothing special. Helps when it's anice sunny warm day.

Its fun to walk on and see if you’re already at Manhattan Beach, but don’t make a special trip just to see it.

After many stops, the most pleasant was the Rock N Fish. As we sat at the bar we had a spectacular bartender named Gregor, who's knowledge of the area was impressive. He gave us multiple suggestions to do during our visit which we tried a few. Along with the company the food was great, the special mix bloody Mary were... More

Excellent small town aquarium that has very child-friendly staff and strong education focus. Great views of the surfing when walking out on the pier.

We're from Santa Monica so when I see the word "Pier" I expect excitement. This pier is just a way to walk and look over the side at the people in the sand and water. I think you can also fish in certain sections. There are some benches. Down at the end of the pier I thought it would be... More

The pier is pleasant to walk on, great views of Manhattan beach. The shop and acquarium at the far end sells coffees and limited food and ice cream options. Alcohol and smoking are not allowed out and during busy times no bicycles are allowed either. You can walk on the Pier with your bare feet it does not get very... More
