Every time I am in LA, I have coffee on the pier!! The beach, the water, boats, surfers, and people are just amazing to watch while enjoying my morning coffee.

I really love the Manhattan Beach pier and see this as the landmark of the city. Will never visit the area without visiting the pier and see the surfers near the pier.

I walked the Manhattan beach strand to the pier today. It was chilly given it’s February but the area is clean, tidy and has fantastic views. I also saw the police rescuing a bird with a broken wing and they were so delicate with it....More

I love that the Manhattan Beach area is at the base of a hill. On a cold, windy day, it's a refreshing walk.
