Fun beach

The waves are great, the beach is clean, and there is plenty of room to be comfortable. Beach volleyball nets are set up, too.

There is a trench about 100 feet from shore where fish and sharks thriive so scuba diving is a popular early morning sport. Surfer and swimmers are welcome with designated areas to keep all safe.

Great on weekdays and a little crowded on weekends. Good for kite flying and sunbathing. Water is clean and dolphins can be seen regularly.

Redondo is a great beach. If you go further down towards the Esplanade, you can find free street parking (along the side streets). If you don't want to have to walk, then bring coins to put in the meters. Dogs are not allowed on this beach so everyone is always walking their dogs up top along the road.

I live in Redondo, and ride the bike path north and south. The last leg south, passes along the beach in Redondo, ending at Torrance beach. It's a nice stretch, with great ocean and beach views.

This is a lovely part of the coast, and just a 'hop, skip and a jump' away from Los Angeles. I stopped here as my last stop on the Route 1 drive from San Diego and walked a two mile section of the beach between the Rock Pier and the Pier (see photo) along the upper and lower boardwalks. Great... More
