We love to come for the day or just a few hours. There are so many things to do nearby with our teenagers.Outside of the water sports there is food for the growing boy, shops for the girls, walking/riding/skating along the boardwalk or a nice walk up Main street for some exercise. There are more parking options than at Newport... More

Huntington Beach enjoys many miles of beautiful beaches, and except for a section of city beach, most of it is part of the State Park. Parking is plentiful, there are lots of free street parking within walking distance if you are reticent to pay the $10 daily parking fee. The beaches are very deep and provide fire pits, volleyball courts,... More

Ok friends, we have a beautiful dog beach starting on Golden West, going north. Dogs ARE NOT ALLOWED on Huntington State beach, nor are they anywhere south of Golden West. Please respect the posted signs. Lots of fun in the sun, bring your bikes and take a cruise. Get here VERY early if you want a fire pit, they go... More

Easy parking with a very long beach so can handle a lot of people crowded. There are many shops and restaurants across the street from pier. Along the beach north toward Seal Beach There is a large conservative area as well.

Me and my husband visited Huntington Beach during our honeymoon! We loved it! The people were friendly, the water was warm and the waves were wild! Parking was pretty expensive though! I'd definitely recommend this beach and would happily return!

So far, out of all the beaches in Southern California I've been on, none gave me a more SoCal vibe. The Pier in the distance, skilled surfers, and palm tree lined beaches add to the bliss of HB. Great waves roll in here and it's an awesome time surfing or swimming.

This was a nice beach to end our visit to California. Our family of six (ages 6 to 60-something) started near San Francisco and headed down the coast to see as much of California as we could. This was a new experience for us because beaches had always meant warm Caribbean waters that were calm and still. California beaches were... More

How can you not love beaches that are clean and easily accessible to all. They have plenty of parking with showers and bathrooms. They also have rentals and little places to get something to eat.
