How close to Hermosa Beach is MB?

We are staying in Hermosa Beach, but from reading the posts, the best restaurants are in Manhattan Beach. How close are they? Is it worth the $$$ to stay right on the beach in Hermosa??

They are right next door to each other, you don't even notice that you've gone from one to the other, as it's a matter of blocks.

I think it's always worth the money to stay right on the beach.

I grew up near Hermosa and loved the beach there, also lots to do, more than Manhattan. Hermosa is the best place in LA no one has ever heard of.

Yes, it's worth it to stay right on the beach.

Hermosa and Manhattan have the same activities. There is not more to do in one city than the other. Same beach, strand, bike and skate rentals, etc. If anything, MB Pier is nicer, and more restaurants to choose from, but we dine in both cities all the time.

However, if you are college age, HB has all the bars on the Plaza at the base of their Pier, tons of young people in the evening, and you could walk there from your hotel, without getting in your car and driving.

Check prices for the Sea Sprite in Hermosa. It's a motel, but, the location is fabulous.


I think you will be happy in either place, they both have a lot to offer. And, it's definitely worth it to stay by the beach.....
