About
Huntington Beach Pier was first finished in 1904 but was damaged in storm and rebuilt in 1914 and in 1931 500 feet was added to the pier but it separated from the original pier in the earthquake of 1933. The pier was repaired but was damaged again by hurricane in 1938 but was repaired the following year. During WW1 the pier was taken over by the military and a submarine lookout and large machine gun was installed. After the war the pier was returned to the public and held up until the storms of 1983 & 1988 finally damaged pier to the point it needed to close. The current pier was finished July 18th, 1992 with a dedication with 500,000 people. The pier was built using much of the same 1914 design. Huntington Beach draws almost 4 million people annually who come for the surfing, volleyball, air show, food and even Segway Tours from Surf City Segway can be booked.

    Beautiful Huntington Beach Pier
    It was wonderful to drive to Huntington Beach and walk along the pier, and see the surrounding area, watch the surfers either side of the pier and watch the people fishing from the pier. Walking the pier was also a great opportunity for us to view the beach either side and take in the size of the wide open expanses of usable beach sand and swimmable water in this area of California. The Huntington Beach Pier is a beautiful pier along with the surrounding beach and ocean. This was a lovely way to spend some time during our vacation.

    Great Pier
    One of the best places to visit. The beach of course is perfect, especially if you're into surfing. The pier always has surfers nearby and its a great vantage point to watch from. Its always a fun walk, with a couple touristy souvenir shops and vendors. At the end there's a restaurant as well, but truthfully I miss the old Rubys. If you're here is a must do.

    Great pier for pictures
    It's different from Santa Monica Pier but I much prefer it. It's tranquil, nice and such a cool beach front and all. Huntington Beach is also great for sports and pictures and has lovely sunsets.

The HB pier is downtown in the restaurant/shopping area. There are parking lots at the base of the pier and others nearby. We walked down after lunch at Duke's and enjoyed the views and scenery. It was pretty busy but not crowded.

The pier is something you must visit just to get a nice view and perhaps see a sunset. There are a few shops out there but it’s mostly just an exercise in walking out and back and enjoying the. Reese and view.

Always a good time to go out your feet in the sand, make sure to go Monday through Thursday to avoid the weekend crowds and parking issues.
