It’s hard to get a bad shot of the Los Angeles–area beaches, but the views of these SoCal piers are especially breathtaking.
Redondo Beach Pier
The Redondo Beach Pier is a South Bay landmark in Los Angeles County. From here, you can enjoy the glorious sunset from several restaurants. You can grab some fresh seafood at Quality Seafood and watch the seals play in the marina.
It’s quite a drive getting to the Malibu Pier but it’s definitely worth it to see this beautiful and peaceful pier with a lot less tourists than the Santa Monica Pier. If you don’t like huge crowds, this is the place for you!
Huntington Beach Pier
From here, a traveler can get an excellent view of the entire Orange Country coastline. It is the perfect spot to watch the sunset and surfers. At the end of the pier, you can often find people fishing. It is just a few minutes from LAX, you definitely have to visit!
