Huntington City Beach
Crowned by the famous Huntington Beach Surf City Pier, this popular stretch of sand extends for 3.5 miles through the heart of Huntington Beach. With the pier, major hotels and Main Street shopping and dining experiences right across the Pacific Coast Highway, the beach is the perfect hub for those wanting to be in the middle of it all.
Board, body and kite surfing are Huntington City Beach faves, as is sandcastle-building, swimming and sunbathing. After the sun goes down, the beach becomes a local hangout as crowds of friends gather to take advantage of city-provided bonfire pits, which can be seen glowing from end to end.
Even with its popularity, Huntington City Beach still refreshingly lacks commercial development found on other beaches, with the exception of your occasional beachside concession or surf shop, which can be seen from our Live Huntington Beach OC Web Cam.
It’s one of the things that separate Surf City USA® from other famous beaches and beach towns in California. Hanging out at the Huntington City Beach, one feels the vibes of the old-school California culture.
