Welcome to Hermosa Beach

A beachfront city that draws in recent college grads, young professionals, and more, Hermosa Beach sits just south of Manhattan Beach and right on the Pacific shores. With nearly 1.5 square miles of the city, Hermosa Beach Real Estate is near a bustling community of sun-baked sand and a riveting bar and restaurant scene. Hermosa Beach’s community is energetic and lively. 
 
Throughout the early days of the area, Hermosa Beach was idyllic and pastoral, full of rolling grain fields and the occasional passing sheep herd. By the time the first pier was built, however, the potential for residential paradise was undeniable. Over the decades, Hermosa Beach grew into the spirited community we know and love today, bursting with waterfront views and cheerful residents.
 
Today, Hermosa Beach luxury homes are known for many things, including its charming architecture. A mix of stylish, modern structures and more traditional, single-family homes in styles like Craftsman set alongside a healthy array of condominiums and townhomes means your dream lifestyle can be realized with ease. The variety coupled, and unbeatable atmosphere are just a few of the reasons young professionals and others flock to Hermosa Beach.

Casual and laid-back without being boring, the area straddles the line between upscale opportunity and easy-going friendliness with ease. Home to almost 20,000 residents, the town boasts dynamic energy. Year-round sunshine, unhurried residents, and sprawling shorelines create this gem of California's coastal living.

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

Compact at fewer than two square miles, the heart of Hermosa can be found in Downtown Hermosa Beach — notably beside the water. Breezy, inviting, and full of fine dining, international eateries, cute boutiques, and more, the retail and restaurant scene can’t be beaten.
 
Home-style Mexican cuisine can be found at Palmilla, where authenticity meets an ornately gorgeous interior and Baja-style fish. Local vegetarians love the options at Martha’s, a cozy breakfast spot for the perfect post-run bite to eat or Saturday brunch. To celebrate some of life’s achievements, you can’t go wrong with a reservation at Sosta Cucina, where Venetian cuisine takes on a whole new level. 
 
Farm-to-table gastropub fare is a favorite among regulars and tourists alike at The Hook & Plow, where new American cuisine and authenticity are everything. Elevated experiences can be found at Baran’s 2239, a family-owned fine dining destination with seasonal menus and excellent craft beers, while Gum Tree is known for its cute, quaint cafe vibe and artisanal attached shop.
 

Things to Do

Integral to Hermosa Beach’s oceanfront identity is Pier Ave, an avenue replete with shops and restaurants that unwind to the Hermosa Beach Pier, where sunsets, fishing, and strolls await. 
 
On top of that, the beach offers invigorating beach concerts called the Hermosa Beach Summer Series. Live music, community, and food create an unforgettable annual experience. The Hermosa Beach Iron Man wonderfully defines the culture of the city — run a mile, paddle a mile, and be sure to pound a six-pack to secure a win. Fitness and fun go hand in hand! 
 
A time-honored local tradition, Fiesta Hermosa celebrates artists and beach culture. Held annually, this blow-out festival is perfect for enjoying the talents of your community, plus the food, music, and arts. Throughout the year, Hermosa Beach’s green spaces and parks are the perfect pockets of lush green nature.
