Excellent atmosphere, perfect weather conditions with clean beach and surrounding shops. There are vendors offering local art and other hand made souvenirs for your trip memories.

One of my favorite beaches we visited while vacationing in California. Public restrooms available (also bathrooms on pier). Meter parking along the street, but we parked on a side street for free. It was cool to watch the surfers! We also walked the pier that...More

Huntington Beach has one of the most beautiful coastlines in Southern California. The view is fantastic as there are no homes built on the side of the ocean. Well, except one set of condos down by the pier. I really don't recommend this beach for...More
