The views from the pier back toward land are a cool perspective. However as of late april 2018 the end of the pier is closed due to construction.

We visited the Pier while waiting to be seated at a breakfast place. The weather was perfect and it was fun to walk out onto the pier. Relaxing and cool!

Beautiful place to walk around and there's a little aquarium at the end of the pier! Fun to watch people go fishing, surfing, take a leisurely stroll or just watch the sunset. Very relaxing and peaceful. The small aquarium is cool to check out too,...More

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.
