Manhattan Beach Pier
2 Manhattan Beach Blvd, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, United States
This state’s historic landmark was built in 1920, and it is the oldest concrete Pier on the West Coast. The Manhattan Beach Pier was designed in 1916 by A.L. Harris to replace the old “Iron Pier” that the 1913 storm destroyed. The Manhattan Beach Pier is a real gem for photographers cause of its red-roofed roundhouse at the end of the Pier and the turquoise steel railing running the entire length of it, and to complete the scene, palm trees surround the parking lot.
The Pier’s sturdy concrete bridge has been standing since the 1920s, making it the oldest Pier made out of concrete on the West Coast. In the 1990s, it was renovated to save its original aspect. Manhattan County Beach is among the the most preferred on Santa Monica Bay, so there are a lot of fun activities on and near the Manhattan Beach Pier, plus other amenities that draw visitors to the area. There are numerous shops and restaurants at the pier entrance, sand volleyball courts, and the roundhouse that houses the aquarium -free admission.
The Pier is located at the western end of Manhattan Beach Boulevard on the Pacific Ocean’s coast in Manhattan Beach, California. Besides the octagonal Roundhouse Aquarium that sits at the end of the Pier, the Manhattan Beach Pier also offers a Volleyball Walk of Fame (Honoring Manhattan Beach Open past beach volleyball tournament winners) and surfing areas that can be seen below the Pier. The Manhattan Beach Pier is popular among photographers, visitors, artists, fishermen, and even locals as it offers beautiful sunsets and vantage points from the hillside and the shore. The South Bay Bicycle Trail passes by the Pier, so you can bring your bike and explore the nearby beaches!
