Written By: Taylor Gorski Manhattan Beach Date Ideas

Valentine’s Day: you either love it or hate it. If you’re coupled up this year, celebrate the day of love with an eventful (but chill) evening in Manhattan Beach. Lucky for us Californians, winter date nights can still take place outside with views of the ocean, festive cocktails and outdoor strolls—just don’t forget a light jacket! All four stops on this epic date night are within walking distance from one another. With just steps to the next destination, your sweetie will be swooning. Trust us, it’s a Valentine’s sure to impress. 


1 | Drinks at Rock’N Fish Manhattan Beach Date Ideas

First stop: Apps on the beach

Rock’N Fish is currently open for pickup and delivery. Order a few appetizers, like the oak-grilled artichoke appetizer and popcorn shrimp, and head to the beach for a little picnic. Time it just right to catch the sunset! Don’t forget to pack a bag with a cozy blanket.

Either before or after your beach picnic, take a walk down the pier and watch the winter waves crash on the shore. The boardwalk also boasts beautiful views of the big blue. And just steps away from the Manhattan Beach Pier is your next stop: The Strand House.

A candle is included to make it even lovelier, and add-on wine options are also available. Take your dinner home, or continue the night and bring this meal to your next destination.
