Home to legends of the surf world and the U.S. Open Surf Competition, Huntington Beach is a haven for beach goers and surf aficionados alike; people with a passionate and uncompromised appreciation for the ocean.
Huntington Beach Pier
One thing you can count on in most coastal towns is a pier that juts out from the main avenue and casts a straight line into the ocean. Measuring in at a cool 1,850 feet,the iconic Huntington Beach Pier is not short on style or history.
The essence of Huntington Beach lives in its downtown sector, making it a crucial part of any visit.
Tours are offered year-round, and it is worth noting that the grey whale migration period takes place from December through April.
Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve
We count the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve as another amazing way to experience the
thriving nature scene in Huntington Beach.
To the unfortunate few that have not yet experienced the Pacific Coast Highway you should consider renting a convertible and scooting along the coast.
Surfing and Stand-Up Paddleboarding
For the novices of the group, opt for a lesson at the Surfriders Academy surf school or rent a paddleboard from any of the local vendors along the strip (they will be in no short supply).
International Surfing Museum
With a history so deeply rooted in surf culture, it’s no wonder that the
International Surfing Museum calls Huntington Beach home. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday.
