We loved Manhattan Beach. A beautiful beach, friendly and clean, unlike other beach cities in Southern California. Great choice of restaurants, shops, and activities.
The beach is family freindly, has clean water, lots of beach volleyball courts, boardwalk, and has stunning backdrop of mountains.
North Manhattan Beach is a family oriented area, but with all the entertainment you need as dining, shopping, spa’s, salons, and hotel. Access to the beach for surfing, sun bathing, and just a relaxing environment.
