I went to Manhattan Beach just to enjoy a walk on the beach. I ended at the Manhattan Beach Pier. It is beautiful, very well preserved and clean. It is the perfect place to come by yourself or with family and friends. It was so calming just to seat and enjoy the amazing view of the ocean and the beach.... More

Visitors can try fishing off the end of the pier. There is a small sandwich restaurant there as well. But the view and the beach vibe made me feel so relaxed. You can also watch the surfers practice their moves.

Love the pier, the fishermen, the surfers, the swimmers and the beach goers. Upscale, quiet, safe and a diversity of restaurants and shops. One of the country's best kept secrets.

My coworker and I took a late night walk downtown since we'd spent the past two days inside a hotel for our conference. It was a good walk and relaxing view.

The Manhattan Beach Pier is the perfect spot to get a view of the beach, ocean, mountains in background, surfers, etc. It can be a challenge to find parking here, so we found a parallel spot up the hill and walked down to the pier. It is steep hill, so be prepared for a climb when you leave! There are... More

Even though it's a pier it is worth a visit, especially of you get talking to some of the mre elderly fishermen - i met a real character.

November at the Manhattan Beach Pier was nice, a clear viewer of the ocean and the neighborhoods around. A very nice place to take a walk with the ocean's place and quiet

This is a fantastic simple Pier with great views especially as the sun sets. There is a small roundhouse at the end which contains a small Aquarium which ask for a donation for entry and a little cafe with restrooms sometimes simple is best

You must walk out on this pier & look down into the clear Pacific. Fun to watch the waves roll in. Also fun to see how many homes face the Ocean, even blocks from the beach.
