A beautiful beach with great restaurants around. Its clean and there is a lot to do here. The best part is, it is less crowded than Santa Monica Beach. Must visit

A great beach city. Great Parking with meters taking credit cards. Also an extended day parking garage a total find! Take a run on strand, go to breakfast, change for beach and have lunch. Everything so easy to navigate! Have a blast!

Enjoy the fresh air and be mesmerized from the waves at Manhattan Beach. As such, Manhattan Beach offers a variety of outdoor activities such as beach volleyball or bicycle riding. Most importantly, it is safe and clean. Finally, the restaurants near the location offer a variety of organic and fresh foods.

The beach was clean and it's definitely for beach goers who want to enjoy the sun, the sea and the sand. No shops nor restaurants besides the beach to pollute the calmness of the beach.

Came here on a stopover at LAX on the way to Los Cabos. Staying at the Radisson LAX made it convenient to get here. The Ocean Express Trolley that serves from Century Blvd and Vicksburg Drive. Ticket is USD5 from this trolley, return. You can get it from the concierge of the airport hotels that dot along Century Blvd. http://www.gatewaytola.org/index.cfm/programs/ocean-express/... More

I really like this area. Fabulous shopping, and restaurants everywhere. It can be a little pricey but there is a fun pier and parks all around.
