I have lived at this beach for almost 40 years. During that time I've seen lots of improvements, including the rebuilding of the horseshoe after the fire in the late '80s and the addition and upgrading of restaurants. So I'm sure that I'm prejudiced. But there's no denying that here is some of the best weather in the world. The... More

I live near the Gold Coast in Queensland / Australia. This is a gorgeous beach which stretches on forever - the pier is good and lots of food options. Gorgeous sunsets.

Spend a few days close to this beach and I really liked running in the late afternoon or evening. Although the beach is not as well known as the other ones more South and North of here it is a very nice, well maintained beach with a great trail next to it that is used for running, biking, walking etc....

This is a really nice beach, both in the day and at night. It's safe, clean and good for swimming. There is meter parking, so make sure you have quarters.

Love this beach. It's not too crazy but not boring either. Good for surfing. In the morning the kids were surprised to see full sea shells washed up!

Very clean beach. Almost no trash and hardly much seaweed, either. It was nearly empty about 9am on a Friday. The sand is slightly more coarse than Santa Monica, but still pleasant to walk on. The coarseness also contributed to clearer water, I believe. Plenty of medium-size waves. The pier was fun to walk around, too.

I used to live not too far from this place and it's always nice to stroll down the beach to catch the sunset or just leisure walk... Can be crowded at times!

Redondo Beach is a great place to relax. Plenty of space to spread out your family. Shops and food are a short ways away - unlike many of the beaches in Southern California that are along the boardwalk. Hotels are only a few blocks away. It's generally quiet, heaps of volleyball nets.

One of my favorite beaches. Nice and clean and well maintained. Beautiful view of Palos Verdes. There is a pier that offers food, trinkets, etc but living here I rarely go there except to walk as I start my trek from the end of Torrance Beach and go north.

Love this beach ! Great view of Palos Verdes, the Pier is always a must visit. That is where one of the Pirates of the Carribean was filmed. In August the kelp blooms, so a lot of kelp on the beach. But great for rollerblading, beach volleyball and watching the Dolphins and , in the winter, the whales.
