The whole pier is old and most of the shops and restaurants had closed down. Only a few people crab fishing and very little to see.
Save your gas.

Unlike other tourist piers, Malibu is a laid back, easy on the eyes place to walk out and see the sunset or views of the ocean. When we were there, a wedding party was enjoying taking pictures of each other with the ocean background. At one end is the restaurant and at the other a gift shop, but people come to fish, people watch, spot a dolphin or two or pelican. Take some time to enjoy it and not rush from one end to the other and feel you have "done the Malibu Pier". with patience you may see something very interesting (people and wildlife). I had read the other reviews and expected to be disappointed; however, I think they may have "done the pier" as opposed to enjoying it.

The best part of the Malibu pier? It's a pier with a restaurant at one end, a gift shop at the other. In between the two ends? Just a pier. People can fish, sit, stare at the water, take pictures....whatever they want. No glitz, no glamour. Just a pier.

This was my first visit to the Malibu area and frankly I expected more. I stopped at numerous beach areas from Malibu south to San Diego. The Malibu area would rank at the bottom of the list. Maybe that is what the residents want. I always heard how Malibu had the most expensive real estate in America but frankly most shore homes in most areas of the New Jersey shore seem nicer. That said, the Pier is still a lovely area that offers great views of the ocean and mountains; I just expected more.

While in Malibu if you don't check out the Pier you are missing out. The pier has excellent ocean views and when you are at the end of the pier take the stairs up to the top of the buildings there for a great photo op of Malibu with the water in the foreground and the Mountains in the backround. Beautiful ! There is a gift shop there that has a lot of cool stuff that seems to be a little cheaper than the prices in the rest of Malibu.
Hopefully some Restaurants will again appear in the two buildings that are vacant now. The pier is definitely a great place to walk to when spending some time in Malibu !
