Foursquare Tips

  • Dec-Feb is sand sledding season. Bring a sled and slide the sand berms near the pier
  • Nice place to exhale on a morning run!
  • If you watch closely you'll see the dolphins coming up for air!
  • Beautiful place to come to to watch the sunset and breathe.
  • Runners . . . Use the bike path. Pedestrians/Marijuana solicitors clog the other path. About 3+ miles between Venice and Santa Monica Piers.
  • Nice place to ride a bike, see the sunset, walk in the sand.
  • $3 to park for all day
  • This is the same pier as in the movie Falling Down with Michael Douglass. The old one was damaged and rebuilt. This is the re-incarnation. It's much cleaner & much more of an open courtyard now.
  • The Venice Fishing Pier dashes straight out into the ocean, cutting its way between brilliant blue wavessurfers on one side, the sandy stretches of Malibu and Santa Monica up the other.
  • Plenty of sunset :)
  • Too many kooks...
  • Bring Your Fishing Pole:D
  • Who likes dirty beaches? Have your friends help you pick up trash and recycle paper and bottles. For more ways to help the environment, check out
  • Wait a little while and you're bound to see a hungry sea lion begging for fish.
  • Great for sunsets
  • The sunset is a must see, great place to walk or ride a bike, crowded for the most part, but you can even fish there
  • Beautiful spot to take selfies with SO. Romantic stroll to the end.
  • It's a good vacation place...
  • Great views. That said, beware of the bird gang at the end of the end of the pierthe seagulls are very intimidating.
