A good place to pop in. It's nice to spend an hour here to wander around. There are tourist shops with some cute stuff. There is fried food and ice cream. There is a nostalgic, old school looking bar there, we didn't get to go in. There are many people fishing off the pier. It had nice views over the water.

From the old style, boardwalk arcade with games of fun and chance to fast food, boardwalk treats and fine dining, this location is great from families, couples and just about everyone. Handicap access is in place for almost the entire area. Fishing is permitted from the pier in certain locations. This location is wonderful for people watching and relaxing as well. There is a parking deck at the pier that starts at $3/hr and may range upwards to $6/hr during peak periods, holidays or special events ( check website for rates) I would recommend this location to all.

Stayed at the hotel across the street for a long weekend. It was nice to be able to walk across the street to visit the pier. There are many good bars, restaurants, and shops to enjoy. There is even an arcade for the whole family. From the pier you can see all kinds of human and wildlife activity. We saw paddle boarders and sightseeing boats. There are a ton of sea lions in the area, and we even saw three dolphins swim right up near the beach to frolic in the shallows. Early March, but the weather was beautiful and the beach & pier were not too crowded. You can rent paddle boats, charter a glass bottom boat to show you the ocean wonders, or rent fishing gear to catch fresh fish from the pier. If you don't want all that work, there are at least two fish markets where you can buy fresh fish, either cooked to order or wrapped to take home.

50 years ago my wife and I were living in Redondo Beach as newlyweds and the pier was one of our favorite places to visit whether to watch the sunset, have ice cream or eat at a seafood restaurant (Castagnola’s). Returned for a visit after 45 years and enjoyed our selves every much as before even though it has changed a little after suffering major damage in a storm a few years ago.

Been going to the pier/boardwalk/King Harbor area since the 60's through early 90's. It used to be quiet and peaceful with not too many people around. Recently went back over Labor Day weekend at night. So Cal was having a massive heatwave and it was hot and humid, even at the beach where it's normally more mild. There were all kinds of people & kids all over the pier area. A different scene for sure. Some came from as far as Adelanto. Though I prefer a quieter scene without commotion, I gave this a higher rating (for other travelers) because some piers are just that, piers and nothing else. They have a lot of businesses here and a parking structure.
