With perfect waves breaking on ten miles of warm golden sands, Huntington Beach has been a haven of surf culture for more than a century. When you’re ready to step off your board, try beach volleyball, or relax beside one of 500 free fire pits and watch the sun sink into the sea over the landmark pier.

”At break time, you are talking with your friends and telling jokes, and you realize that all of your friends are from different countries, cultures and languages. We can’t understand each other with our own languages, but we can understand each other by using English even if it is not perfect. How cool is this?”
