An icon in an area once known as the Riviera of America, the Malibu Pier is well-visited by locals and tourists alike. This historic landmark sits right in the heart of California’s surf culture, a much more relaxed pace and less crowded than its neighboring pier at Santa Monica.
All about fishing, the pier provides sport fishing and boat rides for those interested in finding the best spots for catching sea bass, halibut and rockfish. For fisherman who sets up shop on the pier, they spend hours keeping watch for a catch as their fishing line hangs and sways with the breeze.
Besides fishing, a leisurely stroll can be appreciated on the wooden platform while people watching. And just adjacent to the pier, surfers can be seen hitting and riding small waves.
