About Hermosa City Beach in Hermosa Beach, California

Hermosa City Beach occupies the entire waterfront in the city of Hermosa Beach in LA County. It starts at King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach and continues north for nearly two miles to 1st Street, the dividing line with Manhattan Beach. Walking the beach at the water’s edge is a delight but this beach is popular for many more reasons.

Hermosa Beach is centered on the Hermosa Pier where the highest density of visitors are. In this area and all along this wide beach there are many volleyball courts. The Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail is at the back of Hermosa Beach and connects to Santa Monica and Torrance, a total of 22 miles end to end. Walking the pier and fishing are popular too. Surfers enjoy the milder waves that break at Hermosa Beach, one of several cities that are considered the birthplace of surfing in California (Huntington Beach being another one). Next to the pier is a palm tree-lined promenade with many shops and restaurants to enjoy.

To get to Hermosa Beach City Beach take Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway / PCH) to Pier Avenue and turn west toward the ocean. In about a half mile Pier Ave intersects Hermosa Avenue which runs north and south. Parking can be found along Hermosa Ave and several side streets and in a parking structure just north of the pier.
