Bring your camera, phone or sketch pad. The view is awesome. Take a picture of volleyball players, waves breaking in a gentle curl, or homes that most of us can't afford. Either way, enjoy.

This place is fantastic if you go during good weather. The beach is beautiful and clean. If you want to go to the beach when it’s not crowded, I would recommend to go on a weekday. On weekends and Fridays it gets really crowded.

Was getting there while driving towards the LAX airport for a quick stop and was amazed about the great and stunning sunset view. Paradise!

The Hermosa Beach are is beautiful. Wide, soft sand beach. Valley ball courts to the south of the pier. And, nice restrooms. Perfect for a beach day in Southern California.

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.
