We just love this Pier. Always walk the length of it. Great views of the coastline houses. Lovely clear seas.

Hello All, If you are lucky you may see a seal, dolphin or shark from this pier. There is also a small cantine for beverages and brunch. The view is amazing.

My favorite stroll in the area. I've seen dolphin, shark and loads of fish in the water below and around the MB pier. It's a great place to watch sunrise, sunset, surfers and to sit down to people watch.

I've been coming to Manhattan Beach for work for probably 10 years now, and every night we're there, we make it a point to walk the pier before or after dinner. The sunsets are beautiful, and it's always nice and cool. Plus it's free, unlike the piers I've been to in Florida. Just watch out for fishermen - I've never... More

Whenever I go to LA I always make a visit to the pier. It is a great spot to sit on a bench, drink a cup of coffee and people watch.... And to look at the sea as well!

Fun visit before the crowds! I really enjoyed it this summer! Got to watch the surfers before the Beach Volleyball Open! Fun crowd joined after 9 am.

The pier is very nice and the views are incredible. Not too much to do but enjoy the salty air. Even on a Saturday its wasn't too busy. There's an aquarium at the end of the pier but we didn't go in.

It is amazing that such a place can exist so close to LAX. Typical for California beaches in a nice pier.

The Pier is a delightful stroll. There are benches to stop and sit and relax. Great opportunity to watch the surfers or simply stare at the waves. People watching at it's best.....a lot of fishermen at the end who are willing to show their catch and tell you how they catch their meals! Loved the relaxed atmosphere, and the little... More

Very nice to walk out the pier and watch the waves. When i was there there were a few surfers, and some swimmers. Nice pier. Peaceful. Would be a great place to take your "hunny" at sunset.
