A great beach to come and bbq at. You' can bbq at the park and head down to the beach afterwards. However the beach is not very clean. Lots of tar sea weed and bugs.

The Redondo Beach Pier has a lot of small shops and eateries. It's such a great place to walk around or ride a bike on a beautiful, sunny day. You can also go to the arcade if you have kids or just watch the boats!

The Rodondo Beach Pier is a great place to go eat or just walk around in its many little shops. A lof of artists sell their handmade crafts and souvenirs through these shops and you always see incredible items.

I used to live pretty close to Redondo Beach. I like the seafood restaurants you can find nearby plus they have cool souvenir shops. There's a bicicle road thats pretty neat too.

Anyway, I grew up around this pier and it has what you expect: places to walk, random seafood restaurants, small food stores, an arcade (with a wicked spinny ride), and boats. It's never super crowded (since Manhattan and Santa Monica are not too far off).

Any time I have an out-of-town visitor, I bring them to the Redondo Beach Pier. I have some of my earliest memories at Redondo Beach, eating at Zeppy?s Pizzeria while overlooking the waves and watching the gulls land on the wooden rails outside the windows and sticking my toes in the sand. Not much has changed, I still love to do that, but a new addiction is visiting Kobe Pearl, and picking out oysters to get a pearl. I?m not sure when the tradition began, but somehow it did. I?ve brought people from Ireland, Brazil, France and many other places to that same shop to pick out an oyster. The guy that operates the shop, though his name eludes me, is a gem, always very happy with his cheering sayings like ?C?mon double, double? AYY-YAH!? with a smile while opening the oyster to reveal your pearl. You pay something like $12 and you keep whatever pearl is inside?most of the time around at least $60 value. It?s a great souvenir and the man?s love for what he does is absolutely evident. Following that excitement, and a slice of Zeppy?s Sicilian pizza, it?s off to the arcade for some air hockey or ski ball. It makes for some great memories?which are always the best souvenirs.

Pros: Good fun, good memories.

Cons: Not the cleanest of beaches. Can be crowded.

Redondo has always been a nice place to spend a day at the beach. The pier itself hasn't fully recovered from the damage done by the fire and ocean, but the re-built sections offer a nice walk out above the water. The arcade used to be huge and fun, but is now a shadow of its former self. The restaurants are a bit better than at Santa Monica, and El Torito offers some very nice ocean views. Polly's offers a nice huevos rancheros. Most of the stores are tourist traps, but offer a quintessential SoCal beach experience for the tourist. Parking isn't generally a problem here, and on clear days you can see out to Catalina. The beach itself is a victim of erosion, but is still a nice, peaceful place if you want a good SoCal beach experience.

Visiting the RB Pier these days (now that its new parts are fully integrated) is very reminiscent of my childhood years when my father "forced" us to drive an hour in a beat up station wagon to "the pier". It's still a great place to spend the day near the ocean, stroll through some kitschy shops, indulge in some clam chowder, watch the people, and just cop a squat and enjoy the antics of the local seagull population. Enjoy some SoCal history and have lunch and a cocktail at the old Tony's on the pier, or take the family for an afternoon of arcade games and fresh steamed crab. What could be better?

I cant say this pier beats Santa Monica Pier for attractions, but its sure on my list. Yep, its old, and its sometimes a bit dirty, but its a great way to spend the day. They have shops and tours around the pier. El Torito is also right on the pier which is a great romantic spot to take your partner. It hasnt really fully recovered from the storm that took out most of the old pier, but you can still buy crab legs and claws, and eat them outside. Possibly the freshest and tastiest sea food you can find. There is a huge arcade and midway under the pier next to the parking lot. And for those who like to jog, Redondo beach has about a 2-3 mile bike trail for biking, jogging, walking, and roller blading, Plus there is the beach. Not bad for this old pier.

Editorial from

The best thing about Redondo Beach Pier is how close it is to most points in LA. Only 10 minutes from LAX, this pier is easier to get to than Santa Mo...
