Redondo Beach

Redondo Beach is located off Esplanade Avenue, in between Hermosa beach and Torrance Beach in LA county. The city beach is situated south of the Redondo Beach Pier and encompasses an array of beach activity including; a lengthy bike/jogging path, volleyball nets, first-rate waves for surfing and a great park area to bring the whole family or group of friends.

The Redondo pier borders the beach and is aligned with several restaurants and fun shops. It is an entertaining place to explore and grab a bite to eat off the sand. There is also a park adjacent to the parking lot which offers fantastic picnic table and a huge grassy area where many locals spread out their picnic blankets and chow down. The park also has palm tree encircled playground for the kids.

The adult playground is the actual beach. This beach includes a bike/pedestrian path which extends along the beach all the way to Santa Monica, California. This is a great coastal ride, without the hassle of car traffic and stoplights. It is a nonstop, fun-filled ride with a close up view of the Pacific. Redondo is also a mellow surf beach. There are fun waves to ride but not too challenging.

There are a variety of events which usually take place on the pier. In May there is a student art show and drum circle. The pier hosts a spectacular fireworks display for the Fourth of July, a crazy Halloween party on the 31st of October and some December holiday activities.

There is a fairly big parking lot south of the pier with metered parking available. You can venture out onto side streets to find free parking but the residential communities are usually packed with cars. It will be a challenge, especially during the summer months. There is also parking available in the Redondo Pier parking lot, with over a thousand spaces available. Parking ranges from $1-5 dollars. The shops within the structure validate for the first hour.
