About Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier in Long Beach, California

Belmont Shore, a distinct area of Long Beach California, stretches along 2nd Street and Ocean Avenue on the southern most end of the city. It has its own shopping district, business association, pier and recreation center with the landmark Belmont Pool where an Olympic gold medalist has taught swim lessons for years. Several thousand residents consider this quaint and quirky community a city unto itself and at one time, it actually was a separate city.

The current pier was built in 1966, replacing a wooden pier that stood for over 50 years. The 1,620 foot-long concrete pier offers wonderful views of Long Beach and the surrounding area. The pier is located at Ocean and 39th Place. It offers free public fishing with no license required as long as you stay on the pier to fish. Pay parking is available in a public lot near the base of the pier.
