We didn't have a lot of time to spend here, just a stopping point for lunch, but we liked it. We enjoyed the time we could spend there. We ate on the pier at Polly's place. Great food, very fresh, you sit right on the pier and we watched a young man catching all kinds of things. Worth a stop.

Nice clean beach, cheeky seagulls. Good for a run or a cycle. Water quality appeared good. Nice and warm water.

This beach is close to amenities if need be, but is also clean and quiet. It is conducive to resting quietly and enjoying the sun. If you need more excitement you merely need to walk down The Strand to Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.

The beach was nice, some parts a little dirty but mostly because of seaweed. The pier is very nice with some restaurants and shops.

Wonderful beach. If you want to be around people, go down by the Redondo Pier (Fisherman's Wharf I think) end of the beach. If you want to be in a quiet section, go to the Knob Hill or Avenue I sections. The water is surprisingly warm. My sons swam all afternoon and had a blast. There are bathrooms available as... More

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.
