I loved this beach, it was quiet and clean and just a great day we spent. We were not more than a minute or two off our meter and we got there when the meter guy had pressed send on his tablet thingy. He said if we had gotten there a second sooner he would have let us off but... More

Great beach, but large waves and undertow.....lifeguards very nice. We parked further along the beach ad so needed quarters for parking meters! No credit card meters! Oops!!

Stayed at Redondo Beach area for 4 days out of our 16 day holiday to US. We came down to the beach everyday as the atmosphere was great. Great scenic walks and plenty of room to sit and take it all in. Parts of the beach seemed to be spotless whilst other parts pretty dirty with rubbish. Great place to... More

As beaches go it was reasonable clean and quiet. Of course there was the icon surf hut from Baywatch was filmed here that had people taking photo's around it. An ok place to grab a break, enjoy the waves and have a picnic. Not overcrowded or polluted so better than a lot of the other local beaches.

The beach itself was nice, and the views were great, but the water was too cold to get in unfortunately.

Lovely beach, safe with lots of lifeguard huts. Very busy on Memorial weekend, but still enough space for a game of frisbee!

Bueatiful wide sandy beach and nice ocean with minimal wave action. If you are learning to surf it is probably a good spot, but if you want bigger waves it is not the place.

I pass by going from Newport Beach to Venice Beach, and it worth the stop! The views are very nice, as well the boardwalk and other attractions by the sea. You can also enjoy some of the restaurants and shops that is available.

I liked that I could take a long walk on the beach and at this time of year it was not crowded, but I am not sure how the summer will be. There is easy access to the beach but unless you can find parking in a side street there are parking meters everywhere. The only other problem that I... More

We stopped by Redondo Beach for a quick moment in the sun during our recent trip to California. We ran into the water and stood our ground against the oncoming waves! Except for some annoying seaweed that would wrap itself around our legs, we had a blast getting pummeled by the relentless walls of foamy wetness! We kicked back on... More
