About Seal Beach in Seal Beach, California
Seal Beach, and its picturesque pier, are located in the city of Seal Beach, a small beachside community wedged between Long Beach and Huntington Beach. It is the northernmost beach and coastal town in Orange County.
Seal Beach is a wide sandy beach packed with sunbathers and surfers on sunny days. At the north end it is bounded by the San Gabriel River mouth and on the south end by a jetty protecting the entrance to Anaheim Bay. The central part of the beach has a grass park, Eisenhower Park, and the Seal Beach Municipal Pier where two parking lots can be found. The park is open sunrise to sunset every day.
The north end of Seal Beach has a restaurant called The Beach House which has delicious food and tasty drinks. Picnic tables in the adjacent Rivers End Park allow you to get takeout and avoid getting sand in your meal. The San Gabriel River Bike Trail begins at Seal Beach and goes inland for over 35 miles to the city of Azusa. Parking is abundant at Rivers End Park.
Walking the pier is a must to take in the wide view that includes Seal Beach, Long Beach, mountains, jetties, dolphins, seals, and surfers. This is a perfect vantage point for sunsets too. Seal Beach Pier is over one-third mile long and has benches in many places.
Near the pier, and along Main Street, there are restaurants and shops of all types. If you haven’t been to Seal Beach before, you need to add it to your list.
