  • The sea is quite clean and the water reflecting the sunshine is really beautiful! It’s not uncomfortable at all as walking on the beach without wearing shoes. No need to say about the sunset. Love the views and environment here! I’ll definitely come here again.
  • A well built pier with a nice surprise at the end. The Manhattan Beach Pier is situated on beautiful Manhattan Beach perfect for any beach day with your family or friends. Should the need arise for more exploring to take place, the surrounding neighborhood is cram packed with all kinds of fun establishments. If you wish to go the length of the pier you shall find a well put together aquarium. This aquarium has a great selection of animals. Especially for it's size. So go out and have a great day in the sun.
