Lots to Do in this Beach Community!

Plenty of parking options up and down the beach and the meters take credit cards! There are lots of restaurants and little shops to explore. The community is absolutely adorable... read more

Plenty of parking options up and down the beach and the meters take credit cards! There are lots of restaurants and little shops to explore. The community is absolutely adorable and everyone is friendly. If you have an opportunity to visit, you won't regret the time you spend there...it is a little bit of paradise.

Despite the parking challenges, the Downtown district is nice. There are many up scale shops and restaurants. Close to the beach and pier.

I live in Los Angeles and have visited many of the great beaches here in LA. I love this beach and pier because it offers so many different choices of value and taste selections. You can walk around, shop, eat, drink, do ice cream, coffee up or just sit on the pier and clear your head. The opposite of Venice... More

Calm place to visit with easy enough parking, great independent restaurants, and the best beach that I found in the LA area!

Not crowded like Santa Monica...we could actually enjoy it in peace...kids enjoyed their space. A little uppity but still good.

After moving here 6 months ago from Denver and living temporarily in Venice for 2 months (gross!) and looking at 64 apartments everywhere from Hollywood to Redondo Beach and everywhere inbetween......I have to say...I am VERY pleased with my decision to live in Manhattan Beach! I only live a few blocks from the Pier (by the way, the MOST BEAUTIFUL... More

We stopped in Manhattan Beach after a day of Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard, all the typical L.A. sights, and it was a welcome break. Everything slowed down once we got here. The small shops lining the streets, the coffee shops with locals hanging around, the families out for a day at the beach. It was a small... More

Downtown Manhattan Beach is filled with great shops and outdoor pubs and bistro's. It's like out of a movie scene. A fun place to visit if you like to try new foods, people watch. The beach has numerous volleyball nets and not too far to walk to reach the water. Had a great family day!

Stroll along the streets and visit the numerous shops. We also walked along The Strand, the mile-length row of million-dollar houses that line the beach.
