I recently visited Manhattan Beach Pier and was captivated by its breathtaking beauty. The sand, clear water, and stunning views make it a true gem. Surrounded by natural beauty and upscale restaurants and clothing stores add a touch of elegance to the whole experience.

We were using some time up on the last day of our holiday and decided to drop into Manhattan Beach.
This is a really nice place, and was very quiet. (We did visit on a Thursday.)
It has a great array of shops, lots of eateries, and the long pier to stroll down. There is also an aquarium at the end of the pier, but it was closed during our visit.
Well worth visiting this place.

Restaurants are plentiful here .....quite an array to choose from here. Why not decide to try a new lunch approach and pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at this beautiful spot. Wine bread nice cheeses and fruits. Chicken. This is a fun way to go on the beach to really enjoy this beautiful stretch of beach and the lovely pier. It’s not very busy now and I am sure this will change very soon. Take a nice stroll after lunch. Enjoy 🍾🥂🍴🥗🍗

I got a ticket for backing into my parking space even though my meter was paid. It said Head in only. Is that even legal to give such a ticket? On the beach or not, that's weird if you ask me. Help! Can I fight this?

Honestly nothing to do at the pier other than walk to the end and back.
You can watch the surfers and hang out a bit, but nothing like the Santa Monica Pier.
Walk off the pier, then it's another story.
Streets lined with stores, restaurants, coffee shops, etc.
Very vibrant, great vibe.

It’s a nice cement pier (only one on the West Coast) and the special twist is that there is actually a small Aquarium at the end of it - and it’s free to enter. Yes, a two story aquarium! It’s well staffed so you get all your questions answered by the young and energetic staff. Kid oriented but fun for adults too!
This weekend, they has a HUGE volleyball tournament!!!

Very long wide clean beach. And safe in a nice community. A few good bars and restaurants- go to Rock and fish. Nice walk up the pier too to hear the waves. Clean and has an aquarium but didnt go in as was in the evening.

The octogonal pier, built in 1920, at Manhattan Beach is beautiful. It was built that way to protect the pier from rough waves. There is an aquarium at the end of the pier that you can visit for a $2 donation. Check out more info here:

I was on a business trip to LA and decided to go for an early morning walk to the Manhattan beach. Take an Uber and get down near the pier and soak in the morning sunshine and amazing beaches.

Grab a cup of coffee and sandwich and just relax under the sky. It’s such a calming, almost meditational feeling.
