If there is one thing Los Angeles has an abundance of is beaches. (Shockingly a source involving water that ISN’T being depleted). I’ve been to Venice (twice), to Santa Monica, and been around the Pacific Coast Highway. What’s amazing about all of these places is how they are so vastly different from one another. One of my goals for my time here in LA is to visit all of the beaches and in time that will happen. For now though we are taking it one day as a time and today I look at Manhattan Beach.
Snuggled below Marina Del Ray and El Segundo, Manhattan Beach is the start of several beaches down the Southeast of LA. While it doesn’t have the boardwalk or people watching aspects of Venice (which I love) it still has one hell of a view for almost two and a half miles. If you’ve never been and you enjoy walking on the beach this is a prime location. The other two beaches, Hermosa and Redondo, will be visited as well but for now just enjoy what Manhattan Beach has to offer.
The start of the 2.2 mile walk. Again, not a boardwalk but these people who live by this walkway are lucky as hell.
One thing not so lucky? The terrible inclines they have to endure if they want to get back on the main road.
Getting closer to the Pier
End of the line at Manhattan Beach! Again, not a single bad view shown cause it’s impossible. A couple of miles down South from here is Redondo Beach. Stay tuned next week to see what that place is like!
