Welcome to Redondo Beach
Quiet, beach community for families who want suburban, seaside living
Redondo Beach is a tale of two very distinct communities. South Redondo Beach rests along the Pacific Ocean and is a beachfront community filled with restaurants, shops, and a marina where sand volleyball and surfing are popular pursuits. Head inland and to the north, and Redondo Beach transitions into something a bit more tranquil.
North Redondo Beach is the more rustic of the two neighborhoods, although it won’t be mistaken for pastoral countryside living. Instead, it's more akin to suburbia by the sea, with lovely homes set along tree-lined streets that are close to great schools and excellent shopping.
Owing a bit to the area's distinctive, geographical split, housing in Redondo Beach is quite diverse. There’s a healthy mix of single-family homes, townhouses, and condos throughout the city with pricier residences concentrated in the south while North Redondo Beach offers a greater level of affordability. That said, there’s plenty of pockets of high-end luxury throughout the whole city.

People & Lifestyle
Although it possesses a slice of the California beach life along its western edge, Redondo Beach is a decidedly residential enclave. It’s an ideal South Bay landing spot for families and young professionals who want to escape the more hectic pace of the city’s northern neighbors.
However, Redondo Beach is not all quiet, tucked away seclusion. The city’s beach and marina areas and collection of standout parks provide ample space and opportunity for those pursuing an active lifestyle.
Dining, Shopping & Entertainment
As one might expect, some of the best food and drink in Redondo Beach is served with an ocean view. The Redondo Beach Pier is a popular waterfront destination that features two local hotspots—El Torito
serves great Mexican fare while Old Tony’s on the Pier
is a classic seafood eatery.
A few minutes north in the King Harbor Marina is Shade Hotel’s excellent Sea Level @ Shade
. On Fridays and Saturdays, the restaurant features the rooftop pop-up Izakaya and a delicious sushi dinner.
Head inland to North Redondo Beach and the South Bay Galleria
, which has over 120 stores, restaurants, and services. The six-square block of Riviera Village
takes the mall concept outdoors in a walkable and idyllic oceanside setting. The space includes cafés and dining as well as a collection of unique and locally-owned boutique shops.
