Built in 1889, Redondo’s historical Wharf 1 was the first of Redondo’s era of piers, wharves, and harbors, and today exists as the last landmark to that bygone era. Today, it continues to be a popular tourist spot and attracts folks from around the world. Renowned for its 70,000 square feet of open space, Redondo Beach Pier is the largest “endless” pier on the California coast.
