Redondo Beach is a charming and popular seaside city renowned for its scenic coastline and beaches. The Redondo community consists of two distinct areas: North Redondo, which offers great freeway access for commuters, terrific shopping at numerous malls, live events at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center and only a short distance to the beach! South Redondo is located alongside the beach, adjacent to the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Hermosa Beach and Torrance. It boasts a large marina, pier, luxury hotels, terrific restaurants, amazing ocean-view hillsides, and the delightful Riviera Village.
Among the unrivaled amenities and attractions that you can expect to find in Redondo Beach:
The top-rated Redondo Beach Unified School District includes eight elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school, one continuation school and an adult school. The District’s instructional program includes language arts, math, science, social science, physical education and visual/performing arts.

Each school has received one of the following recognitions: California Distinguished School, California Gold Ribbon School, California Green Ribbon School, California Model Continuation High School and National Blue-Ribbon School.
Nestled alongside the Pacific, the Riviera Village is considered one of the South Bay’s best-kept secrets. A delightful pedestrian-friendly district, it offers more than 300 one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants, galleries, salons, services and family-oriented activities. The Village is a great place to rent some bikes and cruise the world-famous South Bay bike path, which starts just west of the Riviera Village at Torrance Beach and snakes its way to Santa Monica and beyond. The adjacent beaches and spectacular bluffs are popular with walkers, surfers, volleyball players and families alike.
With more than 50 oceanfront dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities, The Redondo Beach Pier and King Harbor Marina is a great place to take in some panoramic and coastline ocean views while on a leisurely stroll. You can enjoy a variety of water activities, hear some live music, indulge in a delightful meal, and pick up some unusual gifts and souvenirs. The largest privately-owned marina from Del Rey to Newport Beach, King Harbor is subdivided into four marinas, with approximately 1,400 slips for private craft and docking accommodations for vessels up to 83 feet long. Among them: King Harbor Marina, Port Royal Marina, Portofino Hotel & Marina and Redondo Beach Marina (where you can take a romantic gondola cruise). It’s also home to the King Harbor, Redondo Beach and Port Royal Yacht Clubs; both with an array of activities and spectacular views of the Pacific. And during the summer months, check out the Seaside Lagoon. Besides swimming in the large saltwater lagoon, you’ll find a sand area for sunbathing, children’s play equipment, snack bar facilities and volleyball courts. There is also a grassed area and luau shelter for day and evening events.
The city’s 1,450-seat Performing Arts Center is the cultural center of the South Bay, offering critically-acclaimed musical and theatrical productions, performances by legendary musical artists, children’s shows, notable speaker events and even fitness competitions. It is also home to the world-class Los Angeles Ballet Company.
