Beach Cities is a nickname for a coastal area of Los Angeles County comprising oceanfront cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach,[1] located on the south end of the Santa Monica Bay west and south of downtown Los Angeles, north of the Palos Verdes Peninsula on the Pacific Ocean in Southern California. Neighboring Torrance also shares a strip of beach property in the South Bay, but is generally excluded from the group.

The three cities share public agencies including the Beach Cities Transit District (with El Segundo)[2] and the Beach Cities Health District.[3]

All three are renowned for their beaches and municipal piers. They are popular with swimmers, surfers, bodyboarders, and other beachgoers. The Strand runs along the beaches and is used for cycling, running and rollerblading.
