Known as the heart of Huntington Beach, this landmark pier in Orange County is the hub of Surf City, USA®. Jutting out 1,850 feet into the Pacific Ocean, the iconic Huntington Beach Pier is one of the longest recreational piers on the West Coast. Stroll down the wooden path and wave hello to the volleyball players on the sand or catch a surf competition in the sea. Try your hand at pier fishing or purchase a kite at the Kite Connection and let it free. Listen to live music at the Pier Plaza Amphitheater or feast on the best burger and shake in town at the famed Ruby's Diner. With the incredible views of waves and sunsets, it's no wonder a photo is taken every few seconds from the top of the pier.
Aside from being the best place to watch surfers catch a wave, the Huntington Beach Pier offers fun for everyone. Stop off at shops like Surf City Store, Kite Connection, and Let's Go Fishing for last-minute accessories for the day or head down to the end of the pier and dine at the iconic, Ruby's Diner or Duke's and Sandy's Beach Grill.
