Nice beach for relaxing

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...

Good beach, quiet with interesting sites. Great from bike riding and sand volleyball. Be careful of getting in the water I got tar all over my feet without knowing it and it took forever to get off.

Hello!! Here’s a little glimpse from my beautiful trip to Los Angeles, California! Redondo Beach where the palm trees and crystal blue waters, give you a deeper spiritual undertone to the pacific than meets the eye. Los Angeles is where my journey began. Nestled on the west coast is a mecca for all things health and wellbeing. To read more... More

I have lived in Redondo Beach for 40 years just a few blocks away from Torrance Blvd and the Esplanade (actually, the tow street never intersect. Esplanade starts just south of the crossing of Torrance Blvd with Catalina Avenue. Anyway, Redondo Beach is one of the best kept secrets in the Los Angeles Area. It has full ocean access on... More

Wonderful view and soft sand. It was quiet when we were there, but so pretty! We could see lots of space and even nets for beach volleyball...nice boardwalk to enjoy the homes and view.

Even for LA, this February is quite warm, with highs of 30˚ or so everyday. We took this chance to go out to Redondo Beach and it was great. The whole beach is more for the residents of the area than the tourists who come out, but there was almost no one. We had our own private bit of the... More
