Foursquare Tips

  • This place is surf city
  • Unlike other major CA beaches, Hermosa beach offers tons of cool bars, restaurants and shops that the local can enjoy and within walking distance from the beach. Only drawback is the parking :(
  • The Med is the best food in Hermosa
  • First surfer I saw was there around 6am - just after sunrise. About 1/2 hour later came the swarm of others.
  • Ride from Manhattan Beach to S. Redondo and really take in SoCal. Amazing views of the beach, parties everywhere, and plenty of awesome places to kick back during your travels. Longboards for sure.
  • Not sure why they call it a surf spot, becuse the guys usually just hang out and the body boarders get most of the play. However, it's great for walking/running.
  • If in Hermosa, be sure to drink a Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka cocktail at North End Tavern.
  • Beach is great, but parking is always a challenge. Most of the area is metered and police patrol it frequently.
  • Get a bike and go for a ride
  • Bikinis and beer
