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. There is also a Lifeguard Tower that is manned 365 days a year and more than a dozen beach volleyball courts nearby. Check out the lineup at the Pier Plaza Amphitheater and enjoy free weekend summer concerts, a weekly farmer's market, and other special events are held each month.
Yes, the Huntington Beach Pier beckons fisherman of all levels, as it's one of the few recreational piers that allows fishing without a license. Enjoy a leisurely day on the pier fishing and taking in the breathtaking coastal views. If you're lucky, you can catch a surfing or volleyball competition while catching sand bass and halibut. You can also charter a boat for deep-sea fishing off the pier.
