Malibu pier is small but a nice visit. Check out Venice beach while there. And grab a burger. Fishing on the end of pier. A few rides for the kids and of course souvenirs.

Malibu is a nightmare to park in, but that said, we managed to snap a street parking meter for only $1 an hour on a Sunday!!!! Lots of restaurants and tourist shops around, but the pier is just a short walk to the end and not much else. Lovely views and good people watching. Nothing to go out of your... More

Not much to see as it is under construction But there is a great restaurant at the entrance to the pier. We had breakfast there and totally loved it.

There are a couple of places to have lunch on pier, medium priced for Malibu. Must pay for parking, no validation. Parking &10. Only a couple of places to browse for souvenirs, most highly priced.

Pier is small. Under construction, we walked up, down and then went over to the beach area. It's dirty and the restrooms are even more gross and disgusting. Parking is very hard and if you have to pay, its very pricy. I will not return.

We took family from out of town to Malibu for lunch and a view of the coastline. The Malibu pier is still under construction at the end but very popular otherwise. At the front is a bustling restaurant and bar and further on are nice benches to sit on and watch the beachgoers and surfers. Beyond those are the local... More

Took friends visiting from France on a road trip today. Decided to visit the Malibu pier and while there stopped for lunch at the Malibu Farm Restaurant. Parking is $10 in the two lots near the pier. We were lucky to find a spot to park on PCH a couple of blocks south of Nobu's a fine Japanese Restaurant. A... More

Nice to get away from the crowds and stroll along the he beach, the pier is iconic. We walked the the nearby nature reservoir and watched the birds.

The pier is currently under repair at the end but the restaurant portion is open. A nice pier though the lighting at night is a little too bright.

It's a lovely walk along the pier and there are some quirky little items to buy and nice restaurants. My favourite thing here to do was people watch and you might spot a celebrity getting snapped by the paps. On my visit it was Andrew Garfield!
