The beach and pier were decently clean, but you couldn’t go the full way down the pier. However, it’s a good place for watching the sunset and surfers in action.

While Malibu gets the props (as it should) MB has a pier to match Santa Monica and nearby shops and dining to match either one. Cali fine all around!

We loved walking the pier and people watching. It didn’t seem as busy as other piers. There was parking and lots of people surfing. It was very nice.

We had one day trip to the Manhattan Beach. Beautiful beach, nice weather, and nice people. They had a beach view library. Cute stores and boutiques. Very charming. Nice houses as well.

Very nice beach. People playing volleyball, surfers doing their thing, people walking, some skaters. You do get the local feeling of a Californian. Note that the aquarium is closed, being remodeled. Wait until the sunset. Totally worth it.

I visited all 3 Beach Piers in this area today (10th June 2018) and Manhattan Beach Pier, and Manhattan Beach in general, was by far the best one. It had a much nicer vibe to it and the beach and town were also much nicer....More

I can't help it! I simply love, love piers! We had a long layover at LAX and decided to Uber over to a nearby pier to spend some time, eat a good meal, and quite frankly - just get out of the airport! We visited...More

A great place to walk along the beach. Went out on the pier and spent a while watching surfers. Walked along the beach and admired the garden areas behind the houses. Beautiful

That's an interesting question. Much of it goes on what you're looking for. Manhattan Beach is a beautiful beach. It has large sand areas and beautiful waves. Santa Monica is also a beautiful beach with almost as large of... More
