Beautiful broad beach, perfect for yoga practise, stroll or relaxing lounging and sunbathing - not so crowded as some other beaches. Perfect for surfing or just watching the surfers doing their tricks. The bike ride along the strand is a must! The beach and the strand is great both towards LA and Redondo Beach

We missed our connecting flight out of LAX and had to spend the night. We had a wonderful morning exploring this cute area, enjoying the ocean view, looking at the houses, and walking around the shops and restaurants. Made our unexpected layover a pleasant surprise!

Great place for business lunches and family gathering as well.. Parking can be tricky and expensive so get there early. Lots of great dining and fun nightspots. Lots of cool shops for all your beach needs. The pier is also very nice.. And not as crowded as Santa Monica pier..

Manhattan Beach pier was very nice, not too overcrowded as the Santa Monica Pier. It was perfect to take my 3 year old. Also, there's a variety of unique stores and restaurants right by the pier. Very nice location.

Great place and atmosphere. Rented bikes and had a great time riding to Redondo. Great restaurants. Parking easy to find. Nice and relaxing. Better than Venice or Newport Beach. Relatively clean safe beach area.

Parking can be hard to find on busy days but the beach was very clean and easy to get in and out. We parked up the hill about 2 blocks and had to go add more coins every 2 hrs. but enjoyed the surfing (watching only) and the boardwalk area. Lots of good food around the area.
