On spotlight: Hermosa Beach, CA

Three young boys checking out the surf.

“A Beach Boys song come to life.” This description of Hermosa Beach is as colorful as it is accurate.

Hermosa Beach is one of the three beachfront localities in L.A.’s South Bay region, and it best embodies the laid-back coastal lifestyle idealized in songs, films, and TV shows.

Here, skateboarding isn’t just a pastime but a mode of transportation. Residents would much rather surf the waves than the internet. You’re more likely to come across professional beach volleyball matches than amateur ones. With two miles of pristine shorelines and 283 sunny days per year, there’s no better place to be than outdoors.

That Hermosa Beach captures the quintessential SoCal lifestyle in just 1.4 square miles makes it even more impressive.

But don’t let its small size and easygoing vibe fool you—Hermosa Beach is one of the area’s hottest real estate markets, with beachside properties regularly fetching seven-figure sums.

So what is it like living here? Discover why Hermosa Beach is one of South Bay’s most coveted addresses:

So much to see, so much to do

Fiesta Hermosa

This annual fete is held over Memorial Day weekend and marks the unofficial start of summer. Over three days, Pier Plaza swells with food stalls, beer gardens, boutique shops, and kiddie carnivals. It is also known as Southern California’s largest arts and crafts festivals, with over 300 artisans setting up shop. There are also three stages where bands play live music throughout the weekend.

The Strand

The Strand is a 22-mile paved path stretching from Pacific Palisades to Torrance. Hermosa Beach lays claim to 1.5 miles of The Strand, and locals walk or bike its length both for fitness and to take in the lively beach scene. You can take a pitstop at the numerous shops and eateries that dot the avenue.

Hermosa Beach Museum

Discover how Hermosa Beach’s unique culture came to be at this museum on Pier Avenue. Here you’ll learn all about the city’s surf culture, its role in South Bay’s jazz movement, and the rise of the local punk music scene.

Hermosa Beach Mural Project

Great art doesn’t have to be confined inside museums – in fact, they can be right around the corner. Hermosa Beach’s colorful and intricate street murals are proof of this. A project of a local nonprofit, these urban artworks aim to beautify the business district through art. The murals range from historical, to avant-garde, to psychedelic – a testament to Hermosa Beach’s eclectic culture.
