A beautiful, laid-back and sophisticated haven by the Pacific. So many eclectic boutiques, cafes, juice bars, gastropubs, and fine dining spots that you could spend days exploring while only scratching the surface.

After living in Redondo Beach when I had just graduated college, I'm back to visit. Manhattan beach is a dream! It's beautiful! The restaurants are great and the shops are so cute! It's the perfect beach town to visit or live.
