Take a Walk in Nature

Let it be just the two of you and nature. Walk hand in hand through the Bolsa Chica Ecological ReserveHuntington Central Park, or along the Huntington Beach Pier.

The largest saltwater marsh between the Monterey Bay and the Tijuana River Estuary, the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve covers 1,400 acres of fresh and saltwater wetlands habitat, a boardwalk over the marsh, and five miles of easy trails through the lowlands and mesas. Let our hiking guide lead the way.

A stroll along the Huntington Beach Pier—the longest recreational pier on the West Coast—offers stunning views at any time of day, but the scene is especially spectacular at sunset. Vibrant shades of orange, pink, purple, and red ignite the sky at sunset throughout the year, and with our “endless summer,” you can enjoy it outdoors all year round. 

Not only is Huntington Central Park the biggest in Surf City USA®, but it’s also the largest and lushest in all of Orange County. Meandering trails, wildflowers, lakes, and a “Secret Garden” set the stage for a whimsical adventure. Check out our guide to plan your visit.
