Huntington State Beach, Huntington Beach California

Huntington  State Beach is a popular beach that extends two miles from Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach, California south to the Santa Ana River on the Newport Beach boundary. 

The park also features a bicycle trail. Surfing, skating and surf fishing are also popular. The beach has fire rings for bonfires (shown in photo) and is south of the pier, with concessions and rentals from Zack's (see link on left). There's a basketball court for one game near the concessions, a new entrance near City Beach Parking lot and the construction of the new Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Hotel and Resort across the street -diagonally. Huntington State Beach parking fees $15. Call the Huntington State Beach phone numbers listed below for prices.

Across from the beach is the 114-acre Huntington Beach Wetlands, operated by the Department of Fish and Game. Huntington State Beach is the site of a nesting sanctuary for the California least tern, a rare and endangered species. The beach is also sanctuary for the threatened snowy plover.

Huntington Beach has four wide, paved paths departing from various areas of the multi-use trail that lead to the beach at about high tide level. They are accessible, but include some slopes at the beach end. Two paths at the south end of the beach lead toward the beach and are mostly accessible. Shade structures with accessible features are available at the foot of both Newland Street and Brookhurst Street. Designated accessible parking and restrooms are near these areas. A Beach Wheelchair is available at Magnolia Kiosk for visitors to use to get beyond these ramps.  Restrooms are accessible.




An accessible, paved multi-use beachfront trail extends the length of the park (about 1 mile) and then on to nearby Bolsa Chica SB for about another 8 miles. Trailhead, mostly accessible parking and accessible restroom are at the south end of park. Accessible entry available from any day use lot. Location-Directions The beach is located opposite Magnolia Avenue on Pacific Coast Highway.
