Along with Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach is part of the famous “Beach Cities” of California. Of these three communities, Manhattan Beach is arguably the most exclusive, featuring the most luxurious homes, less crowded beaches, and upscale shopping and dining.
Living in Manhattan Beach
Manhattan Beach is known as the birthplace of beach volleyball and a hotspot for surfing. Each year, the city hosts numerous events featuring these sports, including the Manhattan Beach Open and the International Surf Festival.
Outside of these big events, the beaches in the city are more laidback compared to Santa Monica, Venice, and other nearby beach destinations. If you’re not up for a day of surfing or swimming, you can take a leisurely stroll down Manhattan Beach Pier, which leads to a picturesque roundhouse with an aquarium with free admission.
You can also go running or biking along The Strand, a paved pedestrian-only path running alongside the beach. Downtown Manhattan Beach features upscale shops, hotels, restaurants, and bars.
Real estate in Manhattan Beach
Waterfront Manhattan Beach homes for sale, particularly those along The Strand, command some of the highest prices in Southern California. These are predominantly single-family homes, with a few townhomes mixed in. They feature distinctive contemporary architecture, with large glass windows and wall panels that let in gorgeous views of the ocean.
A historic beach town, Manhattan Beach also features homes built in the 1930s and later, offering not only modern-day conveniences but also their own vintage charm. Relatively more affordable homes are found further from the beach, but still providing easy access to the water and the finest finishes and amenities.
