Once called the Riviera of America, Malibu Pier represents a historical landmark noted for its three-story point break popular with surfers. Only experienced surfers should brave these waves, but visitors will find plenty else to do on the pier. Learn about surf culture at the surf museum, take a boat tour of the coast, or pick up souvenirs from the gift shops. Get onto the water by joining fishing or whale-watching trips. If you do decide to ride the world-famous break, you can rent equipment on site. A visit to Malibu Pier represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Malibu road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • If you are in Malibu you have to eat the breakfast at Malibu Pier. The best if you sit outside at the sun viewing beauty of the ocean and colorful hills around.  more »

  • A very beautiful place to visit near LA. The view of the beach from this pier is just spectacular. You can eat food or spend hours in fishing. You can even rent a boat. This place is very clean and very well maintained for tourists. The Pacific Coast Highway route adds to the beauty of this city. If you haven’t seen this place in CA then you have seen nothing. Overall an excellent experience visiting this place.
  • After having driven by it for years, I finally gave the pier a stroll. It's not huge or grand but there's plenty of seating and more than a few stations to mount fishing poles. The obligatory fancy store and restaurants are located at both ends with neat little micro-shops stationed along it's length. Definitely worth your time to take a look if you're into strolling a pier and gazing along the gorgeous coast. Views of the historic little point from the West side.
