Unexpectedly arrived tonight with Santa arriving to the area! Tons of locals, streets closed, shops open late, Christmas Carolers & Santa!! Even a shop with a snow machine! Lovely!!

Always nice for a walk. Not my all-time-favorite, but still very clean and nice to hang out at. Gosh, it's a beach - 100 words are a lot ;-)

Cool vibe with an edge of hipster but oozing with money. Great beach, board walk, surfing, volleyball. Can walk the town or get after it with adventures. Worth the visit.

We live here. We play here. Almost don’t want to talk about it, to keep it to ourselves! Lots of local flair with a great food scene.

The weather is generally predictable (sunny and 70-80’s with low humidity...soar perfect) except for the occasional stubborn marine layer we are currently experiencing this week. The beach is huge, clean and beautiful with amazing sunsets. Restaurants and shopping are nearby. The Strand and bike path...More

Been to all the "in" beaches in the Los Angeles vicinity, whether Marinal del Rey, Venice Beach, Santa Monica or Malibu. But Manhattan Beach rates right at the top for us. Beautiful beaches, not overcrowded, very clean and wonderful.
