The City of Redondo Beach

Just south of El Segundo lie the beach cities of Manhattan, Hermosa, and Redondo. A favored destination for surfers, volleyball players, and beachcombers alike, these three cities are blessed with beautiful shorelines, spectacular sunsets, and all that goes with the California sand and surf.

Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach lie south of Manhattan. Hermosa is the smallest of the beach cities, but it is truly a beach town, complete with walk streets, a great pier, and downtown. Redondo Beach is the largest of the beach cities and home to King Harbor, the Beach Cities’ only marina and boat harbor. Redondo is also home to the South Bay Civic Light Opera – a renowned regional musical theatre company, and a wonderful seafront area enjoyed both by tourists from around the world, as well as local residents.
