“Great Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great beach to relax and watch surfers. Once of the few beaches in California that allows bonfires. Great time to bring a few friends and start a fire at sunset.

“Beautiful beach that stretches for miles.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Spent our last day of our vacation on the beach near the pier. Many stores and places to eat nearby. Mostly families sitting on the sand with kids playing in the water. Tons of people surf boarding further out in the water- fun to watch. There were places to rent surf boards close by too. The beach is so wide that getting to the bathroom is a walk, but free admission for the day. Nice soft sand but not many shells. Great waves to ride boogie boards on near shore, but not so strong that they would knock you over. Fun family time with our 9 and 15 year old.

“Great Beach with lots of place to play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Clean, beautiful - great sunsets! The pier is so much fun, restaurants right on the beach, dont' forget Ruby's at the end of the pier. Lots of wave action for boogie boards or surfers.

“Very Nice Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Very convenient parking. The State Beach, is located next to the city parking area, but the State parking, is nicer, though priced higher. We go there all the time. The beach seems kept clean, has restrooms (though the restrooms are progressively not kept clean as the day progresses...bring hand cleaner, and maybe tissue...wear shoes in there too). There are no food facilities, so pack your stuff, unless of course you do not mind walking a few hundred yards from the beach to the adjacent Huntington Beach business areas and /or pier, where there can be plenty of choices, depending on if you really like walking. The slope of the beach is mild, surfers frequent the area, lifeguards are well apportioned, and you can see Catalina Island very well on a clear day. We have seen frolicking dolphins in the surf a couple of times. We like it. Get there no later than 10:30 AM, parking fills up maybe sooner on weekends for sure.

“cool surfer town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Is a nice beach, with good party vibe, all year long has something going on. In the summer you will have music, bands playing, shows on the pier or at the beach. Even in the winter you will see things going on.
