See

Do

On hot dry days in Los Angeles, the beach area has amazingly cool and clean air, and is less crowded than the beaches between Santa Monica and Malibu.

Redondo's King Harbor has many restaurants, a boardwalk with shops and an arcade, and a large pier with great views. Location is at the west end of Torrance Blvd. Plenty of parking, in shade (nice in Summer)

Several miles further south is Riviera Village, a charming little shopping and eating district. As property values have soared in the area, the Village has "Yuppified", but retains its small seaside feel. Location is along Catalina Avenue and Vista Del Mar streets. Interestingly, only one of these shops has seating outside where one can actually view the ocean. It's at the NW corner of Catalina Avenue and I street.

Between the above 2 locations along the Esplanade (street) offers great ocean views and access to a superb stretch of beach.

Only minutes away are Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, South Bay and the city of Torrance. Palos Verdes Drive West begins at the South end of Redondo and is a lovely scenic drive (about 10 miles long) along the Coast and through the beautiful Palos Verdes residential neighborhoods.
