Huntington Beach Pier

Measuring 1,850 feet in length, the iconic Huntington Beach Pier is one of the longest piers on the West Coast. Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean at the intersection of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway, it symbolizes the heart of Huntington Beach and is the most photographed spot in town. The pier and the city came into existence together in 1904, and thanks to historic surfing demonstrations by legendary Hawaiian watermen George Freeth and Duke Kahanamoku, this landmark is an integral part of Huntington Beach surfing lore. Rebuilt after two storms in the 1980s, the pier is all about simple pleasures.

A leisurely stroll offers stunning panoramic views of Catalina Island, Newport Beach to the south, and Long Beach and San Pedro to the north; aerial scenes of the surf action; and, of course, photo ops. Step into Surf City Store for souvenirs, The Kite Connection for colorful acrobatic silks and ribbons, or Let's Go Fishing for a rod, reel, and bait to cast your line off the pier (no license required). Reward yourself at the end with a classic all-American burger and fries, creamy milkshake, and serene ocean view from Ruby's Diner.

Located at Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street, the pier is free and open to the public daily from 5 am to midnight. Please note that dogs, bicycles, skateboards, and smoking are not permitted on the pier.
