Welcome to Hermosa Beach, the center of Los Angeles County's South Bay coastline. Situated right on the Pacific Ocean, Hermosa's average temperature is 70 degrees in the summer and 55 degrees in the winter. Gentle westerly sea breezes take the edge off what can be high summertime temperatures in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the county. The same breezes help keep the smog away 360 days of the year. Hermosa Beach has one-and-a-half miles of the prettiest, cleanest beaches in Southern California.
A beautiful place to live; there are residences on the Strand, bungalows scattered throughout the town, and multi-level homes in the hills with ocean views. Hermosa Beach offers a microcosm of Southern California options for any lifestyle. The city boasts a community theatre; service, social, senior citizen and veterans clubs area also available. There is even a weekly farmers market with farm fresh produce, eggs, honey and flowers. And most any day, people might watch movies or TV commercials being made at the beach, on the Strand, or in various vintage restaurants and cocktail bars. Volleyball tournaments are nationally televised from Hermosa Beach, site of the Annual Surf Festival, a sports event which draws lifeguard participants from all over California and as far away as Australia.
