MANHATTAN BEACH LONG BEACH
Welcome to Downtown Manhattan Beach, the “Pearl of the South Bay”. Founded in 1912, Downtown Manhattan Beach is home to fashionably chic shopping, award winning restaurants and chefs, mouth-watering dining options steps from the beach, and amazing sunsets.
Take a stroll with the kids to the Roundhouse Aquarium at the end of the historic Manhattan Beach Pier and make sure to look down so you don’t miss the Volleyball Walk of Fame. Sit by the fireplace in Metlox Plaza, rent bikes to ride the paved beach-front bike path, rent surfboards or cruise the water on a stand-up paddle-board, or just roll up your pant legs and collect seashells at low tide. Spa treatments, salon services and yoga workouts with a view are on every block.
Manhattan Beach is a laid-back South Bay community popular with families and outdoor enthusiasts. The Strand bike path winds along the oceanfront between modern mansions and wide stretches of sand lined with volleyball courts. Low-key Manhattan Beach Pier features a quaint aquarium and views of surfers. There are several parks, and a small downtown area with boutiques, brunch cafes, pubs & creative, upscale eateries.
