“One of the longest on the west coast”
The Huntington Beach Pier is a municipal pier located in Huntington Beach, California. At 1,850 feet (560 m) in length, it is one of the longest public piers on the West Coast.The most recent reincarnation of the pier is designed of reinforced concrete to withstand 31-foot (9.4 m) waves or a 7.0 magnitude earthquake and uses an increased space between piles to accommodate surfers - as requested by the City. The pier slopes gently up toward the seaward end in a straight line which alternates with three octagonal platforms and one rotated square (108 feet on a side) that forms a diamond at the pier's seaward end. Not only is the pier structurally sound, it also retains a number of design elements from the original pier including haunches at the pile caps and corbels supporting light standards.
Bring money because it is $15 to park, but free to stop and take a pic.
So close to Orange County California, Huntington Beach Pier is a nice place to stop by and walk at the sandy beach and at the pier itself.
The views of the hundreds of surfers are fantastic to see as they look like colorful shells at the sea.
The sunset is also amazing and you can enjoy great food at the pier's restaurant!!
