Beautiful location for great views of Malibu! Lovely sunrises and sunsets..Many great shops bars and restaurants to choose from. Packed in the summer but still worth checking out! Lots of beach and volley ball nets. Cute little aquarium at the end of pier.

Regardless of the weather, Manhattan Beach Pier offers beautiful views of the ocean, beach and coast. Great place to walk or sit (on one of the many benches that line the pier) to people watch, enjoy the sun and see the beautiful views. I try to visit Manhattan Beach Pier every time I am in the area.

This pier is so pretty and such an icon for Manhattan Beach. It was such a delight walking back and forth up and down the pier and sitting on the benches watching the many surfers try and catch a good wave. Very relaxing and a great photo opportunity.

Visiting Manhattan Beach so we had to walk the pier. The surfers we out so we had entertainment for the walk. The air was a little cool with overcast skies but it was very pleasant.

A volleyball lover's dream!! Rows and rows of volleyball nets down the stretch of beach south side of the pier, and the sand deep and soft. This place is a must visit if you are in the area. There are quite a few parking areas that are reasonably priced ($1 per hour in most garages) - there are shops to... More

We spent a beautiful afternoon in Manhattan Beach starting with the pier. It has a small aquarium at the end. Well worth the visit.
