The Manhattan Beach Pier is located in Manhattan Beach, California on the Pacific coast. The pier is 928-feet long and located at the end of Manhattan Beach Boulevard. An octagonal Mediterranean-style building sits at the end of the pier and houses the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab & Aquarium. The pier is popular with locals, tourists, and for fishing, as well as with photographers and artists, offering sunsets and vantage points from the shore and hillside.
A pier was built at this location in 1901. That pier was destroyed by a storm in 1913. In 1920, the pier with today's design was built. The pier has gone through numerous transformations over the years, but ultimately, the pier right now looks the way it did in 1920.
In 1995, the pier was declared a California historic landmark.
