It can be quite windy on the pier, but it's worth the walk. You often see Pelicans chilling out and showing off on the pier railings which are fun to see. You get great views of the surfers and get a real feel for what size and power some of those waves compared to the views from the beach. We have been into Ruby's Diner on the end of the pier which is fun to do (don't expect amazing quality though). They do takeaway from a small hatch too. We saw a shoal of Dolphins swim by whilst eating in the diner which was amazing, something we will never forget. The views looking back to the beach and all the palm trees are great too. There are public restrooms half way down the pier which is handy for anyone who finds themselves needing them after being surrounded by all that water!! You must put this on you list of things to do when checking out Huntington Beach.
