A peerless pier, Manhattan Beach
Thomas J. Story

A peerless pier, Manhattan Beach

Southern California loves its piers, and none gets more summer lovin’ than Manhattan Beach Pier. With surfers riding the waves, multiple volleyball games along the sand, and tanned and toned locals providing flesh-and-blood evidence of Manhattan Beach’s fitness obsession, the pier gives you an opera-box perspective on SoCal beach culture. It’s also mercifully free of clutter, so you get views that sweep from Palos Verdes Peninsula to Malibu. End of Manhattan Beach Blvd.; ci.manhattan-beach.ca.us
