Hermosa Beach vacation rentals

Hermosa Beach boasts sun-kissed shores

If you’re seeking sweeping golden sands, dazzling blue waves, and towering palm trees, all a short way away from bouncing city energy, then look to Hermosa Beach vacation rentals. Hermosa Beach is one of the 3 beach cities of Los Angeles county – the other 2 being Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach – based a stone’s throw from downtown Los Angeles. Hermosa Beach’s wide flat sands are suited to beach sports – particularly volleyball – and host year-round cultural activities, including open-air concerts and outdoor theater, all with the emerald Pacific Ocean as a heavenly backdrop.

Making waves in Hermosa Beach

Hermosa Beach buzzes with year-round cultural and sporting activities. Energetic outdoor enthusiasts can indulge in water and beach sports, whether it’s paddle-boarding, surfing, or volleyball. A smooth paved path runs beside the beach – and snakes along the entire LA Pacific shoreline – which is perfect for cycling, jogging, or that classic California past time, rollerblading. If you’ve booked one of the many peaceful, family-oriented Hermosa Beach vacation rentals, you’ll find a raft of family-friendly activities to match, including a dedicated children’s picnic playground, rustic beachfront farmers’ markets, and a lush butterfly-filled Greenbelt Park.

Family fun in Hermosa Beach

It might be tempting to spend your entire California getaway in your Hermosa Beach vacation rental – whether it’s a zen-style retreat or Spanish-contemporary hillside home with adjoining pool – but once you’re out and about you’ll find plenty of top attractions. The Hermosa Beach Pier is a key sight – it stretches out from the white-gold sands and surges into the shimmering Pacific, lined with wooden benches providing romantic views. Just south of Hermosa Beach, families can take the little ones to the Redondo Beach Seaside Lagoon water park, with its slippery slides and swimming pools.

The 6-month Hermosa Beach summer

Sun seekers will enjoy Hermosa Beach vacation rentals year-round, as the area boasts a remarkable 325 days of sunshine per year. If you’re looking to snatch a good deal on a top Hermosa Beach vacation rental, book just before or after the long May to October summer season. In April and November, temperatures hover at a pleasant 68 degrees, and the beach is less busy. If you do want the soaring 75 to 80 degree temperatures of the Pacific summer, bear in mind that June in Hermosa Beach can be overcast with fog, so July through October are preferable.

LA access and relaxing nature walks

Hermosa Beach is based in the South Bay region of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, a 30-minute drive south of downtown LA, and a 15-minute drive to Los Angeles International Airport. Hermosa Beach is one of the pearls strung along the Pacific Coast Highway, a long state highway that covers most of the north-south California coast. Aside from Hermosa Beach’s wide, plateau-like sands, there’s plenty of natural beauty to discover in its protected Greenbelt Park, a 3.5-mile wood-chipped trail loomed over by pines and conifers, and bursting with wildflowers.
