“Real Beach Town”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I work in Hermosa for the last 2 years, and live 25 min from here.If you really want to have a taste of "locals", a relax place, with laid back people, withouth the crazy atmosphere of Venice, this is your place.Pretty beach, clean, lots of Life guards during summer, a nice pier, with restaurants and bars, couple of souveniers shops, you can also rent a bicicle or even skateboard here, and have fun in the Strand....people watching, volleyball courts.Just watch out, you need quarters for parking, pretty crowded during summer or weekends, but worthed.Also you can walk all the strand, to the left to Redondo Beach, to the right to Manhattan Beach.

“Nice walk, nice town but why do dog owners….”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

negligent to poop scoop the strand. Parts are disgusting and this happened on a daily basis. Since the parking police seem to earn their keep and keep Hermosa Beach in the black, perhaps they could make a real killing enforcing the ""curb your dog ordinance. HELP!

“Great beach and the most bars and restaraunts”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

A really nice beach with soft sand and good swimming, surfing. Take a walk onto the great pier where there are often fisheman. The heart of southern california. Manahttan beach is great too and a nice 1.5 mile wald down the strand. Redondo is about a mile walk in the other direction. Lots of little shops, coffee shops, bars, good beach places to eat.
