Manhattan Beach offers a nice beach, plenty of lifeguards and facilities including restrooms and showers. The beach has a bike path that goes from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica (probably 10-15 miles.) Manhattan Beach is an upscale area with many restaurants and bars. Lots of shopping. Close by are Hermosa, Redondo and El Segundo Beaches. Surfing in MB is like anywhere else in SoCal typical south bay beach break totally dependent on shifting sand bars. The are the best after a rain but beware water quality after wet storms....picks up most swell directions except straight south....best bet... big winter mornings with east winds. Parking can painful so I recomand try to park in the main street and walk to the beach. In the winter the pier lot has tons of parking but....drive around aimlessly searching for a parking spot in the summer is the only donwside of this beach.
