Hermosa Beach ... “One of the Top 10 beaches in the USA”
If you’ve tuned into the Travel Channel lately, you may have seen the recent hour-long show that touts Hermosa Beach as being “one of the Top 10 Beaches”. Hermosa Beach was recognized for not only its pristine beach, but because of our outdoor activities, festivals and events, nationally televised sporting events, and as the home of the “largest arts and crafts show in Southern California.”
A sun-drenched beach village of just 1.3 square miles, Hermosa Beach sits at the edge of the Pacific, just 5 miles south of Los Angeles. The town is the very essence of the Southern California lifestyle, and the mild weather patterns make it an ideal vacation spot all-year round. Temperatures range from highs of 77 degrees in the summer to a balmy 67 degrees in winter, with the nighttime temperatures rarely going below 50 degrees. The spectacular coastline, wide sandy beach, rich history and specialty shops make this community a favorite with Californians.
Daytime activities abound in this vacation haven. Hermosa Beach’s one and a half mile stretch of sand is the training ground for some of the world’s best pro-circuit volleyball players. Olympian Gold Medalists hone their skills at the net, and the AVP Volleyball “Hermosa Beach Open” tournament is held annually and televised nationally. It is also an ideal place for surfing enthusiasts, boogie boarders, ocean swimming, and fishing from the pier. Those who wish for more relaxing pursuits build sand castles, enjoy the antics of pelicans and dolphins, sun themselves in the year-round breezes, and stake out a place to view each evening’s spectacular show as the sun drops into the Pacific.
However, Hermosa Beach is much more than sand and surf. This lively beach village offers up live music with choices from rock to blues to jazz. In the summer months, the city features Sunset Concerts on the Beach for the whole family to enjoy. You’ll also find culture in many flavors with three art galleries, live theatre at the Hermosa Playhouse, and the famous Comedy and Magic Club where Jay Leno performs every Sunday night and such famous names as Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Maher drop by regularly for an impromptu appearance.
