Manhattan Beach is a laid-back South Bay community popular with families and outdoor enthusiasts. The Strand bike path winds along the oceanfront between modern mansions and wide stretches of sand lined with volleyball courts. Low-key Manhattan Beach Pier features a quaint aquarium and views of surfers. There are several parks, and a small downtown area with boutiques, brunch cafes, pubs & creative, upscale eateries.
Come spend the day shopping like a local at our variety of nearly eighty retail stores. Stop for lunch or complete your shopping day dining at our award-winning restaurants or relaxing at the spa. Take a stroll with the kids to the Roundhouse Aquarium at the end of the historic Manhattan Beach Pier. Ride your bike on our paved beach-front bike path, or just roll up your pant legs and collect seashells at low tide. If you time it right, you can even catch the “Wimbledon of beach volleyball”, the Manhattan Open or “the granddaddy of all paddle board races”, the Catalina Classic!
