Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier | Long Beach, CA


The Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier is a popular site for fishing and strolling in Long Beach. It is located just a few minutes from second street and is surrounded by the beach. You can easily access from the Downtown by walking through the Shoreline Pedestrian/Bicycle Path.

This pier was first built at a location known as "Devil's Gate". In 1967 the new concrete Pier opened east of the old one. Their characteristics are 1800 feet long and 24 feet wide, with an enlarged hexagonal area at the seaward end, and two wings extending 120 feet east and west.

It was renamed in 2005 as "Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier". An inscription was added at the entrance:

The people of Long Beach dedicate this pier to the men and women of our nation's armed forces, as a tribute to their love of country and a memorial to their sacrifice.
