Measuring 1,850 feet in length, the iconic Huntington Beach Pier is one of the longest piers on the West Coast. Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean at the intersection of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway, it symbolizes the heart of Huntington Beach and is the most photographed spot in town. Our pier's location allows visitors and locals alike to experience the breathtaking views amidst the sounds of crashing waves and the ocean breeze. The pier and the city came into existence together in 1904, and thanks to historic surfing demonstrations by legendary Hawaiian watermen George Freeth and Duke Kahanamoku, this landmark is an integral part of Huntington Beach surfing lore. Rebuilt after two storms in the 1980s, the pier is all about simple pleasures. Learn More!
