Local family atmosphere-all ages, surfing, beautiful pier, restaurant and shops nearby. Very clean beach. Great to walk, swim or surf. Designated paved Bicycle lanes. Highly recommend to get away from heavy crowds and enjoy locals.

This is a very nice beach that is right off a quaint town with lots of dining and cocktail options. While it is very family friendly, there are plenty of options for singles and couples without children. Overall a beautiful area and a nice experience.

A very nice Los Angeles district. Much more quiet, clean and organised. The beach is big, with good equipment, very clean public bathrooms and lots of (paying) parking space. The surf should also be good, but during our stay it was small (waist height) and...More

On our final day in LA, we decided to take the Ocean Express from our hotel near LAX to Manhattan Beach as we had a free morning before our flight. It was well worth the trip! Being from Sydney, this was the only beach that...More

I've lived in LA since 2003 and my most favorite place is Manhattan Beach. It doesn't get the crowd or element Santa Monica gets and you can always find parking for free or very cheap. (Santa Monica parking is $12+). I like getting a Subway...More

We stayed at the Wave Hotel and could walk to the beach. Hotel was clean and comfortable. The beach was clean and the weather was perfect. Took engagement photos and the beach backdrop was beautiful.

I loved the feel of this beach. It was beautiful and clean. The sounds of the waves and the wind in your face makes you feel relaxed and makes you want to sleep. This is an amazing place to come to not only to enjoy...More

Manhattan Beach is a super nice, clean beach. One of my favorites in the area. We love to run the Strand while we are visiting and enjoy the beatiful scenery.

Close to LA but it feels like it's a world away. Restaurants, jogging and separate bike paths, white sand beaches and a pier make for an enjoyable visit for all.

40 minutes to an hour. Depending on traffic. Uber is available at reasonable rates. Best to go late morning to avoid rush hour traffic.

Yep, it's called the ocean express. Easy to get tickets; your concierge will have them available.

Manhattan Beach is perfect: close enough to LAX so that you're not afraid to miss a flight due to LA's traffic jams, yet it feels like a small town. October is great, lots of preparations for Halloween so it's fun and fresh... More
