Welcome to South Redondo Beach
A beautiful community with striking views and a lively downtown
South Redondo Beach is the southern half of Redondo Beach—a South Bay “Beach City” alongside Manhattan and Hermosa Beaches. South Redondo is the coastal part of Redondo Beach. Just southwest of Los Angeles, it’s an easy, breezy beach escape!
South Redondo is most known for the beach! It’s also home to a famous pier, as well as a variety of shops and restaurants. The beach bike path makes for fun outdoor activities. Its downtown area offers events and entertainment for everyone, while its gorgeous vistas make for tranquil sunsets.
Its proximity to the beach and cliffside topography makes South Redondo a fierce competitor in the coastal real estate game. Beachside homes average about $2 million, while inland bungalows come in at about $1 million. However, compared to nearby communities, South Redondo offers more square footage per lot.
