Great beach

Beautiful beach and surroundings at Manhattan Beach. Nice shops and restaurants close nearby. Relaxing environment and plenty of space. No problem bicycling to the beach.

Spent a week in the area and, as always, this beach is clean, safe and well-maintained. Crowds were non-existent and parking was easy and free.

Manhattan beach is really easy to get to on a layover if you stay at a hotel that has Ana ocean express bus stop close by. We got to shop, look at beautiful homes, eat great food and meet the locals. Fun n easy. No rental car needed

Took the tourist bus (around $10 each return I think) from an airport hotel to Manhattan Beach. Had some fantastic fish tacos for lunch and went for a walk on the beach and pier. Lovely weather and not too crowded. Great way to spend a few hours on a stopover day before flying the next morning.

Nice beach with a long pier. Stay for sunset. You can get some great pics. It was fun to watch the surfers in wetsuits surfing.

Been to almost all the beaches the last 5 days and Manhattan is one of the top 5 in my opinion. Very senior friendly with nice locals to talk to.

While on business I walked on the beach and on the strand every morning. It was so beautiful. As I walked along the surf, watching the surfers, dolphins were close by and each time a wave crashed there would be a rainbow of color in the spray. Great people watching and dog watching -- and fantastic architecture to admire.

Manhattan Beach offers a nice beach, plenty of lifeguards and facilities including restrooms and showers. The beach has a bike path that goes from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica (probably 10-15 miles.)

Spent a 3-day weekend stayed in Manhattan Beach with 16 of good friends. It's a great beach for a stroll, run or playing with the waves.
