lots of nice sand

Just like Hermosa and Torrance Sate, this is a nice wide sandy beach. The bike path is right there and places to get food too. great place to send the day

Nice and clean beach. It offers dressingroom and restroom. I don't surf but I enjoyed watching other people do it. This time of year ( November) not crowded at all.

Redondo Beach, California is a moderate beach city of approximately 65,000+ people. The beach itself is terrific, situated north of the Redondo Beach Pier. While there is beach space on the north side of the pier, the real gem of this stretch of beach is located further north, north of Topaz Street. The beach goers found along the Esplanade is... More

No major tourist shopping on the beachfront - unlike Venice Beach - so this is much quieter. Nice place.

I just moved to Redondo from Central LA and I love it. I will say, the weekends can be crowded but any beach in Los Angeles on the weekends is equally if not more crowded. I love Redondo on the weekdays, its like my own private beach. Very local, and not touristy at all. Not a lot of shopping, but... More

This is a beautiful place. There is a play ground for kids. The view from the park is so beautiful! The grass is so green , the Ocean is so blue! You can have a great picnic with the family. The parking is very easy to find. A lot of food at the Pier.

We had to walk only 3 blocks to get the ocean. I noticed there was plenty of parking in the neighbor hood for anyone... More

Walked down the beach with a friend and just hung out by the waterline. The sand and water are immensely better than at Long Beach. There's volleyball courts and plenty of space. Didn't feel crowded at all by other beach goers.
