“Great beach to walk on- but hopefully there will be no heat wave when you get here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Unusual heat wave made this visit almost intolerable- traffic on 405--- and I thought Boston drivers were bad! They need public transport badly! Manhattan Beach is beautiful! Nice shopping district. Visit Lemonade- great food and lots of different kinds of lemonade-reasonable

“Best Beachwalk in LA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Manhattan Beach is the nicest, cutest little beach town in LA. The walk on the strand leads you to beautiful houses with different styles. People are running, taking a walk, walking their dogs. If you want to ride on the bikes use the bike path right next to the beach.

The weather is always nice and sunny, however it is could get chilly and foggy as it is close to the water so be sure to bring something to keep you warm if you plan to spend time here after the sun sets.

Some fishermen stay at the end of the pier trying to catch the fish in front of the little aquarium which is fun to check out. No fees but donations are welcome.

Watch the surfers and just watch the sun sets. The dolphins show up quite often too.

“Beautiful Classic California Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Manhattan Beach is pure classic California. Big beach, lifeguards, good waves, surfers galore and a fantastic pier. There are volleyball nets, plenty of fun beach bars and a view that rivals many California beaches. It's a must go for anyone driving through Cali!
