Manhattan Beach / Redondo Beach

The quintessential oceanside living experience, Manhattan Beach is the epitome of upscale beach living. Nicknamed the “Pearl of the South Bay,” Manhattan Beach is known for its beauty and desirability. Nothing short of splendid, real estate in areas such as The Strand, Gas Lamp Area, El Porto, West of Highland, Downtown, and South End are filled with multi-million dollar beach-adjacent properties, ranging anywhere from $6 million to $12 million and above.

During the 1920s and 1930s, Manhattan Beach was dominated by its sand dunes. It was so out of control, some of that sand was shipped to Waikiki, Hawaii to transform their reef and rock beach into a larger, sandy beach. Some of the sand was also used to build portions of the Pacific Coast Highway as well as the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Manhattan Beach has not only been resourceful, but a popular filming locations for many big pictures ranging from Jerry Maguire to Starsky and Hutch.

Next door, residents and prospective buyers will find Redondo Beach which still offers luxury but with both a suburban feel and reasonable prices.
