Enjoy Southern California’s #1 Surfing Experience
Hermosa Beach takes its name from the Spanish word for “beautiful.” It’s a great place for surf lessons, with the most happening beach scene in all of the South Bay. With a beachfront strip lined with bars and restaurants, a bike path the attracts people of all ages, and summer concerts right on the sand, Hermosa Beach has everything you need to take a surf lesson and then enjoy a night, or an afternoon, out on the town. The city even features an artificial snow park in the winter!
With westerly winds that blow through and keep the high Los Angeles temperatures at bay, Hermosa’s water temperature can also be a bit cooler than surrounding areas (don’t worry, wetsuits are provided!). For those who want to try surfing and then step straight out for a lively afternoon, or even just into a great lunch, Hermosa Beach is the spot for you.
