Hermosa’s two-mile swathe of golden sand is one of the most popular stretches in Los Angeles County.
With 94 acres of beach to stretch out on and top-notch conditions for surfing, it attracts visitors of all ages.
At the heart of the beach is the historic pier, which has had pride of place for more than 50 years. If you fancy doing a bit of fishing then this is the perfect place to do it from.
You’ll also find a whole heap of bars and restaurants by the pier, along with a decent selection of shops.
Along the beach there are lots of lifeguard posts, as well as plenty of facilities like restrooms and showers.
There are also plenty of activities to keep you amused here, with volleyball and tennis courts dotted around, and little ones can let off some steam in the beachfront playground.
As previously mentioned, surfing’s particularly popular here, and there are surf festivals which take place throughout the year.
And if you’re lucky, you may even spot a celebrity or two having a sunbathing session. Hermosa Beach is home to a number of Hollywood A-listers and NBA players.
