Redondo Beach Pier
Website | Fisherman’s Wharf, Fishermans Wharf, Redondo Beach, CA 90277
The Redondo Beach Pier was originally built in 1888 to handle the massive lumber trade from the Pacific Northwest. The current horseshoe-shaped and seventh-generation Pier stands 25 feet above the water, spans over 70,000 square feet of open space, and stretches out into the Pacific Ocean. The Redondo Beach Pier is known as the biggest “endless” Pier on the Californian coast, and it is also connected to a remnant of the Monstand Pier that was built in the 1920s. Nowadays, Redondo Landing serves as the getaway place to The Pier. Its facade honors the Loff Hippodrome, a 1920s carousel building from The Pier. The Redondo Beach Pier continues to host visitors from all around the world and generations of families who have grown up with the beautiful vistas that the Redondo Beach Municipal Pier offers.
The Redondo Beach Pier has been rebuilt and altered several times due to storms and redevelopments. Its official name is “Municipal Pier,” but it’s also known as the “Endless Pier.” This Pier started near the 19th century and ended as a disjointed group of wharves but evolved into an interconnected structure after a series of demolitions throughout the 20th century.
Located at the end of Torrance Blvd and less than 10 minutes from LAX, the Pier is a South Bay landmark worth visiting. Its horseshoe shape land provides visitors an excellent opportunity for a scenic stroll with loved ones with breathtaking panoramic ocean and coastline views.
Along with the adjacent Marina and International Boardwalk, the Pier offers over 50 dining, retail, and entertainment establishments. You could spend your time shopping, docking your boat and walking right up the arcade, dining with ocean views, enjoying live music during summer nights, or enjoying numerous free events that the Redondo Pier Association offers throughout the year, like outdoor concerts, Southern California longest-running kite festivals, classic car show, chalk art festival, and the Taste of the Pier!
