Nice pier with a variety of shops and Ruby's diner at the end

The pier is very nice for walking, and there is a nice variety of shops on it. Ruby's Diner is at the end, for good views of the ocean (sunset especially!) while eating.

Huntington Beach is nice, but it's really like most of the other Southern California beaches I've visited. Nothing wrong with that, but nothing particularly special about it either.

Great views of the ocean as well as large enough to accommodate plenty of tourists. The surrounding stores represent a nice variety of shopping.

No trip to Huntington Beach is complete without walking the pier. In addition to some unique shops there are great views both looking out toward Catalina Island or looking back toward the town. Looking down on the beach it is amusing to see the bevy of activity. Surfers, sun bathers and volley ball games are just some of what you'll... More

Love the pier. So nice to just walk and people watch and if you are lucky, the old pelican will be there people watching with you.

A great place to spend the day. Many sand volleyball courts with leagues. Surfing in both sides of the pier. Best to boogie board on the north side of the pier. More rocks and harder waves on the south. You can rent boards. Restaurant (Ruby's ) slat the end of the pier and other options that over look the water.... More

Picked a beautiful sunny day to walk out on the pier -- not too hot, nor too cool or windy. Had lunch at Ruby's Diner on our previous visit to the pier but this time, we just wanted to enjoy the fresh air, ocean breeze and the fabulous view. Lucky to see some large white birds perching on the posts,... More

The pier is beautiful and its fun to watch the surfers and people playing volleyball! My family didn't like walking through the marijuana smell from the people sitting by the street. But other than that it was a beautiful place and we had a good time.

I walked out to end of pier to take pictures, and could see Catalina Island across the way. Also watched surfers catching the waves. Great for pictures, and had a pelican bird posing for me for his picture close up. Best of all it's free.

We left STL at 7 am….flew first class on AA. We had a good breakfast…and watched movies. I watched Joy and How to be single. Steve watched whiskey tango foxtrot and daddy’s home. They were all good movies. We picked up the car from Avis…I despise Avis….there is always some kind of issue. We stopped for lunch at Polly’s pies…we... More
