Huntington Beach is home to five fine interconnected beaches, all possessing their own unique atmosphere and personality. Surfers, sunbathers, skaters and cyclists all feel at home in Huntington and after a session on the sand or in the water, there's no better way to end the day than by taking a walk on its historic pier that stretches out into the Pacific.
