After lunch, we stopped at the beach, and wondered if we should get out of the car. It was cold, overcast and quite windy, and except for seagulls and a few hearty souls, the beach was virtually deserted. However, we do miss the ocean (lived in California for 43 years), so opened the car doors, and had to fight the... More

Paid parking if you have a car but the walk was not far from our Hotel. Water was very cold and be careful of getting oil on your feet as the oil refinery is not far away and is mixed in with the seaweed and sand.

The pier area has so many things to do it's hard to describe. My twin daughters really enjoyed the arcade which is on the bottom floor underneath some of the restaurants. There are plenty of bicycling lanes for you to cruise around on. There is a multilevel parking garage to take care of your parking concerns. There are lots of... More

Very well maintained. Many activity. Except for the Bluewater grill staff, everyone else was nice and helpful. We want to a yoga session on the pier. Great organization.

I love running on Redondo Beach, plenty of room, didn't meet any crazies. Beach is very clean, has beach volleyball, it is close to the pier for refreshments.

Nice, wide beach. IT is located below the street level down below several flight of stairs from the main street. It is different than Hermosa or Manhattan beach since it does not have all the houses infront of it.

Take what you will need for a day at the beach - not as many opportunities to purchase refreshments, etc. - but that helps avoid "touristy" appearance.

love this place, water is not so good...it is Cailfornia anyway. If you are expecting nice crisp water then you should go to Caribbean.

We rode our tandem bike from Hermosa Beach to Redondo Pier! The Strand is a beautiful place to ride right along the ocean! Talk about ocean breezes whisping through your hair & the sun smiling on your face! When we got to the pier, there are bike racks to lock your bikes & restrooms for freshening up. We had wonderful...
