First built in 1904, the original Hermosa Beach pier was constructed entirely of wood, even the pilings, and extended five hundred feet out into the ocean. In 1913 the pier was partly washed away and later was completely torn down to be replaced by a new pier. The new pier was 1,000 feet long, built of concrete, and paved its entire length with asphalt.
The Pier sits at the end of Pier Avenue, which is one of the beach community’s main shopping, eating and partying areas, known for its bars and nightlife. For upcoming events, including the biannual Fiesta Hermosa, check out our Events Calendar!
The Pier can be seen in the 2016 film La La Land and scenes from the TV show The O.C. were filmed on the Hermosa Beach Strand, Pier and Plaza.
