Santa Monica Pier

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Santa Monica holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

As Santa Monica's most famous attraction, the pier is a city icon. 

Flanked by the 130-foot high Ferris wheel, the Pier is home to Pacific Park; an amusement park featuring the five-story West Coaster roller coaster, the Pacific Plunge tower ride and the only over-water miniature golf course in California. The wheel, the pier's most famous resident, is the first solar-powered Ferris wheel in the world and welcomes more than six million visitors to the park each year. 

You'll also find the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium here with hands-on presentations and interactive exhibitions, as well as the Carousel; a national historic landmark. If you fancy a spot of fishing, you can do so from the Pier itself, or see the Trapeze School of New York perform daring tricks and stunts, and even take part in two-hour classes for beginners.
