The biggest of the South Bay Beach Cities, Redondo Beach has a population of over 60,000 located in two major sections (North Redondo & South Redondo) East and South of Hermosa Beach. The area’s history dates back to a Conquistador land grant, but today’s Redondo Beach has little in common with the rolling, sheep-grazing barley fields of yore. The modern version has beaches packed with sunbathers, athletes, and weekend warriors running or biking The Strand, and sailors taking their boats out of the marina for relaxing weekends. Redondo has many distinctly unique neighborhoods-most remarkable being the “Riviera Village,” where you have a quaint shopping center with restaurants, cafes, and some nightlife.
