Hermosa Beach is a clean and nice beach. They do have bathroom facilities too. Parking can be a hassle though. Bring quarters, lots of them. If you find a parking spot, it’s 12 minutes for a quarter.

A nice clean pier, stunning views, benches, friendly people. People are fishing near the end. I believe dogs are not allowed on the pier, officially, but we often do see leashed dogs.

Very clean, very minimal. I enjoyed the walk to the end and the views were cool. But it's really just a pier. So average rating.

I love Hermosa Beach Pier area. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the pier itself. The price range from moderate to expensive. Several types of restaurants like burgers, seafood, and American food. Very family friendly, clean, and safe.

Hermosa Beach does offer free outdoor showers. I did not see any lockers nearby. I left my things on my beach towel...no problems...particularly if you swim near a manned lifeguard tower. What a beautiful beach.
