Huntington Beach is a Film Friendly Community, and because of that we've taken measures to ensure that your filmmaking process is a smooth, efficient, and enjoyable one.
Our ten miles of coastline offers a variety of amazing looks - from our beautiful municipal pier to the rocky cliffs of dog beach. We allow cars on the beach for driving shots, have ample coastal parking, and of course, we're the perfect spot to film a surf scene. But there's much more than just the beaches! We invite you to browse through the many location galleries available on our website; we think you'll be surprised by what you find!
Huntington Beach is located in Orange County, California, and is partially within the 30-Mile Zone. It covers 28 square miles of land and 26 square miles of water, making it one of the 20 largest cities in the state.
Surf City USA's near-perfect sunny, dry, and cool climate is ideal for filming. High temperatures rarely exceed 85°F (29°C) and lows rarely fall below 40°F (4°C).
The Huntington Beach Film Commission is proud to offer free assistance to film, television, photographic and commercial productions working within the City.
