Hermosa Beach

Welcome to Hermosa Beach

Hermosa Beach (Hermosa, Spanish for "Beautiful") is one of the three Beach Cities, bordered by the other two, Manhattan Beach to the north and Redondo Beach to the south and east.


Situated on the Pacific Ocean, the city itself extends only about 15 blocks from east to west and 40 blocks from north to south, with Pacific Coast Highway running down the middle. Hermosa's average temperature is 70 °F (22 °C) in the summer and 55 °F (13 °C) in the winter. Westerly sea breezes lessen what can be high summertime temperatures in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the county and help keep the smog away 360 days of the year.


The city's beach is popular for sunbathing, beach volleyball, surfing, paddleboarding, bars, cycling and running. The wide, flat beach makes Hermosa Beach one of the most popular places to play beach volleyball, from professional to amateur. Hermosa Beach is home to the AVP Hermosa Beach Open tournament, and several amateur CBVA tournaments during the year. Of the three Beach Cities, only Hermosa Beach owns its own beach. The other two cities' beaches are owned by the county of Los Angeles.


A paved path, called The Strand, runs along Hermosa's beach from Torrance Beach in the south approximately twenty miles north to Santa Monica. The Hermosa Beach Pier is at the end of Pier Avenue, which is one of the beach community's main shopping, dining and entertainment areas. It is a popular place for walking, running, and biking. 


Hermosa Beach has its own elementary school and middle school but high school students are served by either Manhattan Beach or Redondo Beach. At the high school level, public school students can choose between two schools, Mira Costa High School of Manhattan Beach Unified School District or Redondo Union High School of the Redondo Beach Unified School District.
