Hermosa Beach is located in the heart of the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Situated between Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach, Hermosa is on the southern end of the 22-mile Marvin Braude Bike Trail, aka The Strand and the least formal of the bunch. Besides oceanfront biking, there are many activities that make Hermosa one of the most popular beaches in Los Angeles County including beach volleyball, surfing, and paddle boarding. The hub of the action in Hermosa is centered on Pier Avenue, filled with notable restaurants, coastal-cool shops and fun bars. A place where you're more likely to see a skateboarder than a spa, if you really want to unwind without the pressure of always looking put together, visit Hermosa Beach.
