Beautiful ocean view.

This pier it's just beautiful, be sure to be on time to watch the sunset. A lot of options for dinner or lunch around.

Awesome warf and an amazing photo with a good sunset. Bring your board if the swell is up and wind is right, few decent left handers under the pier!

Enjoyed walking up the pier in August 2015. Nice views of the ocean and the sail boats going by. Also, of the beach and surrounding MHB shops and homes.

If you're going to Manhattan Beach this is a must see. There's volleyball plaques throughout the pier for the winners of their tournament. And a great aquarium at the end. My kids loved it and they're generally hard to impress.

We stopped in while staying at a nearby hotel to catch the sunset and enjoy a nice walk along the shore. This is a classic old pier with a small aquarium out at the end. Definitely don't miss this if you are in the area.

closest beach and pier to LAX hotels. Getting here via hotel shuttle service vans easy and inexpensive ($5 r/t) Many restaurants in the adjacent town and a very nice and clean beach.

I love the beach! They have nets for volleyball, bikes for rent, and lots of space to lounge. They have restaurants and shops just across the street. If you're looking to chill and hangout, I'd say this is the spot to be.

A nice promenade walk to the end of the pier. You can watch the surfers and take in the view. I did intend to take breakfast at the end of the pier but it was basically just a take away. Walk takes about 30 minutes from town.

The Manhattan Beach area & the pier are a great spot to visit. We were there in December, so not many people around. Great to explore.
