Things to Do in Huntington Beach

With our 10 miles of uninterrupted coastline, consistent sunny skies, and charming seaside downtown, Huntington Beach has perfected the surfer cool meets coastal chic lifestyle. Just like our summer, our lineup of fun is endless.

Every day visitors and locals alike embrace their inner beach lover by sinking their toes into the sand, surfing the epic swell, spiking a volleyball, strolling the iconic pier, and gathering around a beach bonfire—and they have their choice of five dreamy beaches, all connected by a 10-mile paved beach path ideal for walks, jogs, and bicycle rides. There’s even a mile-long stretch of sand dedicated to dogs in our famously pooch-friendly town.
