When it comes to the attractions in Hermosa Beach, it is the beach itself that gets the most attention, and when you get here, you’ll understand why. Not only can you soak up some rays while hanging out at the beach here, but you can also play a little volleyball, enjoy some surfing, do some fishing on the pier, get some exercise on The Strand, and more. Speaking of The Strand, which is in itself one of the top attractions in Hermosa Beach, it not only runs along the beach in Hermosa Beach, but also extends south into nearby Redondo Beach and north into the equally close Manhattan Beach. You’ll see bikers, joggers, skateboarders, and rollerbladers cruising along The Strand, and it is also ideal for casual strolls, as is the beach’s walkway. Other amenities at the beach in Hermosa Beach California include public restrooms and showers, a bait and tackle shop where you can rent fishing equipment, and swings for kids to enjoy. As mentioned, playing some volleyball is possible at Hermosa Beach, and there are courts here for visitors to enjoy. Visit Hermosa Beach California in early June, and you’ll likely have the chance to catch the AVP Hermosa Beach Open, which is a professional volleyball tournament. It’s quite a bash, and during the tournament, the Hermosa Beach bars are often as lively as the play on the courts.

Lifeguards are on duty at the beach in Hermosa Beach during the daytime hours, which adds some peace of mind for families who are enjoying Hermosa Beach vacations. Wheelchair access is available for the pier, as well as restrooms, The Strand, and the beach’s walkway, making it simply an ideal destination for just about anybody. The beach opens to the public at 7 a.m. and doesn’t close until 10 p.m., so there’s plenty of time to enjoy all that it has to offer, and come sundown, hitting the city’s bars and restaurants is a perfect way to cap off the funfilled days. For those who are looking to do some shopping during their Hermosa Beach vacations, the unique shops here offer plenty of interesting goods to peruse, and you can also stop by the Farmers Market to see what you can pick up there. The Farmers Market is only open on Fridays between noon and 4 p.m., and because of its colorful atmosphere, it’s one of the attractions in Hermosa Beach that you will not want to miss, at least if you are around to catch it.

Hermosa Beach California is small, so the attractions in Hermosa Beach are somewhat limited in number, but there’s certainly enough to keep you busy. Factor in the fact that you can easily reach other cities and towns in both Los Angeles County and Orange County, and it becomes evident that Hermosa Beach vacations are anything but boring. The 325 days of sunshine is enough to convince most people to plan a visit to Hermosa Beach, and chances are good that after just a few days here, you’ll not want to leave.
