Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier is a popular site for fishing and strolling located at 35 39th Place. Sport Fishing can be accessed at the end of the pier, as well as a snack stand and bait shop.
In 1908 the citizens of Belmont Heights asked the city to build a pier. The pier has been called the Grand Avenue Pier, the Belmont Heights Pier and Devil's Gate Pier in its history.
When the pier was renamed "Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier" in 2005 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."
The pier was seen in the TV show Dexter in Episode 1, of Season 6, "Those Kinds of Things." In the episode the police find a dead man full of snakes, supposedly on a Miami beach.
The pier is open one hour before sunrise and closes at midnight daily. Lights, stations for fish cleaning, restrooms and a bait and tackle shop are available. Fish species reported to be caught off the pier include halibut, barracuda, shark, sand bass, croaker and perch.
