We have been to Manhattan Beach Pier many times - and it’s a beautiful place to take a stroll, see the ocean and at the right time, to watch a sunset! Recommend this classic beach spot to all South Bay visitors!

Watched the sunset on the pier and so nostalgic and a great view- wonderful solo, couples or with families. The boardwalk and area all around are wonderful and a true California experience.

A great place to go sit and soak up the sun without touching the sand. Beautiful on a nice sunny day, even in the cooler months.
