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.

We visited as a hurricane was out at sea. All other southern beaches were already closed, but Redondo was protected by the peninsula to the south. We swam for a little while, then left. Always a nice beach.

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.
