Welcome to Redondo Beach
Peaceful, easygoing beach town with an incredible shopping.
Easygoing and relaxed, Redondo Beach is a quintessential beach town and marker of Southern California Bay Area culture. Surrounded by its sister communities Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, Redondo is the quietest of the three, exchanging nightlife for suburban living. The Pacific Coast Highway runs parallel to the shoreline dividing the town into two halves.
You'll find the town's most famous shopping areas and fine dining bordered by expensive oceanfront estates on the westside, whereas the east side of the PCH is home to peaceful residential communities. Empty nesters, families, and retirees flock to Redondo because of its sense of solace and sophistication. It's also conveniently located near the major freeways, dozens of decadent hotels, and LAX.
Shopping in Southern California doesn't get much better than in Redondo Beach, home to both the Riviera Village
and the South Bay Galleria
. Riviera Village is a cultural mecca of art and fashion. Located three miles from King's Harbor Marina
, it's home to more than 300 unique boutiques, services, salons, and eateries. South Bay Galleria is the premier shopping mall in Redondo. Open since 1985, South Bay has served as a backdrop for dozens of film and television productions.
After a day spent shopping, take a romantic stroll along the world-famous horseshoe-shaped pier and soak in the dazzling panoramic coastal views. Dine at one of the many excellent restaurants bordering the water.
Blue Salt Fish Grill
is one of the best casual seafood spots in all of Los Angeles. Almost any fish dish you can imagine is on their menu, including their famous fish and chips. The best place to get sushi is Sushi Chitose
, while Thai food fans should visit Bamboo Thai Bistro
. For top-of-the-line Cajun Food, try Matty’s Crawdaddies
—their cornbread buns and crawfish dishes are sublime.
Like its neighboring towns, there is plenty to do outdoors in Redondo Beach thanks to the 1.5-miles of the beach. Surfing is a year-round sport, and locals love to bike kayak, take a gondola ride, snorkel, fish, boat, sail, scuba dive, and watch the wildlife.
Take a nature cruise on the Voyager
and witness the magical migration of grey whales to Baja, Mexico during the late winter and early spring months, or take a more artistic approach by visiting the Wyland Whaling Wall
. On a casual day strolling down the boardwalk near King's Harbor Marina, you might even see some dolphins breach the surface of the water.
