Skip the glitz - head to the Southern-most beach

This is the little gem in the stretch of Los Angeles beaches that begins above Malibu and takes you through Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and, finally Redondo Beach. My favorite is the area of Redondo Beach that is at the southern tip - where you see the Palos Verdes peninsula stretch outward into the Pacific. It is relatively quiet here, less crowded (except on weekends), certainly cleaner, decidedly more civilized. From the beach, stroll a few blocks into Riviera Village - quaint shops, lovely outdoor cafes abound, smiling faces are not a novelty here.

Be buzzed by a seagull

He's really friendly - almost a bit disconcerting in that they seem to have become scavengers. I don't see them out in the ocean "fishing" for the day's meal. We may have overfed them to where they are now dependent on us for their breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Surfers love this beach

    It is all about the beach here in Redondo. Used to come here a lot on summer vacations visiting family in nearby Torrance.

    On this rain-filled October evening, it was a pleasure to read you tips about Redondo Beach. Photographs are spectacular.

    Lovely little Redondo Beach page. I just love California cities, esp. the beaches and the fishing piers.

    Yes, it's always nice to be in places where "smiling faces are not a novelty".

    Looks very different from Roma, but still seems lovely!
