Had a nice morning walking along Redondo State Beach. The beach was pretty clean and we saw people swimming and scuba diving. There were sail boats gliding along the horizon.

Redondo isn't flashy, doesn't have cool weird people doing insane stuff on the strand. But it's a great beach-wide, not overcrowded, clean with lots of parking. Speaking of parking, there's $.25 meter parking and parking lots but they're only at the south end that adjoins RAT Beach (Redondo at Torrance). It's got plenty of bathrooms, not so much food so...

since it is November, the beach is not crowded. So it is nice to walk and enjoy. And California sunshine is still nice in November. But parking is a bit difficult. However, there are plenty of paid parking available and is not expensive.

This is an absolutely wonderful beach. It's huge and uncrowded, the sand is clean, the water is clear. And there's a really great pier too.

It has very calm waters at times, a great pier to eat and drink at, and a lot of things for kids to do. This is one of my favorite beaches to visit and stay at while in Southern California.

I always go to Santa Monica beach when in L.A. but took my parents down to Redondo Beach. It is much closer to the boardwalk, adequate parking and the pier is beautiful with fun shops and lots of seafood.

Moon was gorgeous, clear night and felt safe since it is near businesses - very enjoyable. There are lots of restaurants nearby - with access and transportation - and if you like the nightlife that is also available nearby.
