The only think on the pier is a nice surfer statue. Lots of nice beach nearby. A boardwalk passed through it. Lots of restaurant/bays close to pier, some had nice character. Town a couple blocks up also had some interesting places.

The pier is so peaceful. Stop by the one of the coffee shops on your way, grab a Paradise bowl and enjoy a beautiful walk on the pier. Watch as people pull in the fish and some just take in the beauty. Afterwards you have...More

We had a great time here, but like any Southern California beach in July, it was crazy crowded! Beautiful weather, lots of choices for food and drink, but just prepare yourself for a massive amount of people if you go during summer months.

We walked the length of the Hermosa Beach Pier. We walked over the plaques of the Surfers Hall of Fame but we mostly watched surfers on both sides of the pier and fishermen throwing their bait into the water. Magical Place but no concessions.

If you wonder why people love California, go visit the Hermosa Pier and the Strand. It is pure California. A great place to walk, exercise, biking and watching volley ball and surfing

We went to the pier after having brunch at a local restaurant. It was not crowded. Parking is an easy 10 minute walk to the pier. We enjoyed hanging out and relaxing on the pier.

Depends on your plan, time of day, and weekday or weekend as well as time of year. Be smart have a lock and plan an all day affair It's a beach thing time limits do not apply.

Hermosa Beach does offer free outdoor showers. I did not see any lockers nearby. I left my things on my beach towel...no problems...particularly if you swim near a manned lifeguard tower. What a beautiful beach.

No. It is a safe place so just find a spot on the beach and lay out your beach towels and enjoy! People are pretty respectful of your space and items!
