Once called the Riviera of America, Malibu Pier represents a historical landmark noted for its three-story point break popular with surfers. Only experienced surfers should brave these waves, but visitors will find plenty else to do on the pier. Learn about surf culture at the surf museum, take a boat tour of the coast, or pick up souvenirs from the gift shops. Get onto the water by joining fishing or whale-watching trips. If you do decide to ride the world-famous break, you can rent equipment on site. A visit to Malibu Pier represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Malibu road trip planner to plot your vacation.

Malibu Pier Reviews
Nice pier with shops and food. Great view out both ways showing the coastline and hills. Clean and not crowded. more »
We started at the Malibu pier and strolled south down the beach for about a mile and a half to an obvious Rockpoint and then came back. Beach is perfect for a stroll, and the houses are quite varied..... more »
Malibu is a great place to come and relax. On a hot day, you can cool off on the beach. It is also a good place to people watch. Malibu is one of the fancier parts of Los Angeles as well, so there is good shopping here. Please be aware that traffic in this area can be a challenge.
I totally love this moment! We sat on the rocks facing the sea, not far from the famous bridge to admire the waves. Just chilling. You will find some restaurants around, even for small budgets. Jack in the Box is behind the parking (be careful not for vegetarians :(...). There are two public toilets (not very clean by cons) above the rocks. Also a nice place to discover and for photoshoot under the bride!
