Redondo Beach is without a doubt the most underrated beach in LA. It is nowhere near as busy as Venice and Manhattan beaches just a short way up the coast- and it offers just as much to visitors.
You’ll be able to escape the busy streets, enjoy great food and really relax in this chilled out little corner of LA.
Let’s take a look at the five best things you can do at Redondo Beach to maximize your stay.
Hit the Beach
Obviously the number one thing you absolutely have to do when visiting a beach town is enjoy the beach- and Redondo Beach is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
The stunning golden sands stretch out before you, but unlike the beaches just north of here, there is no one in sight.
The peace and quiet will catch you off guard after spending time in the city, and the beauty of the Palos Verdes Hills and wide open skies will calm you to your very core.
Do a bit of surfing, catch some rays or just stroll in the sand- it’s a pretty perfect spot! Once you’ve had your fill you can return to the finest Torrance honeymoon suite at the Miyako Hybrid Hotel for some more rest and relaxation.
Ride the Strand
The Strand is the name given to the incredible 22 mile long coastal path that stretches from Redondo all the way up to Miami.
It passes through some truly incredible areas like Venice Beach, and is a great way to spend an afternoon.
Shop and Dine at the Pier
The Redondo Pier is one of the best places to spend an evening; period.
You’ll be able to enjoy the stunning views, spot the dolphins and sea lions in the ocean and enjoy some incredible food and drink.
When the sun has set live music fills the air and the atmosphere is electric with relaxed and happy locals.
Whale Watching from the Beach
Many people don’t realize that this section of the LA coast is an important part of the migration pattern for many species of whale.
This means that you actually don’t have to head out on a whale watching tour boat- instead you can simply sit on the sand, or up at the pier, and spot some of mother nature’s most majestic beasts.
It’s a truly unforgettable experience to see whales from the land.
Watch the Sunset at Miramar Park
There are many excellent places along this section of coast to watch the sunset- but locals will always recommend Miramar Park.
It’s a little grassy outcrop that juts out over the beach and offers unimpeded views of the entire beach and horizon.
Relax with the soft grass under you and watch a spectacular sunset in peace.
Make the most of your stay and enjoy the area to the maximum then head back to absolute comfort at the Miyako Hybrid Hotel. Breakfast is included, so fill up before you head out to explore.
