Hermosa Beach

Vista Sotheby's International Realty

Hermosa means “Beautiful”. Founded in 1906, Hermosa Beach is located on the Pacific Ocean, 5 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport and just 18 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. Even with its proximity to Los Angeles, Hermosa Beach remains a quaint and beautiful beachside community, just over one square mile in size, with a population of 19,506. Hermosa Beach is known for its beach activities including surfing, paddle boarding, and beach volleyball, with many professional and Olympic volleyball players calling Hermosa Beach home. In the last 15 years Hermosa Beach has undergone extensive renovation and beautification projects which have transformed the landscape of the city. Renovation of Pier Plaza at the foot of the Pacific Ocean was completed in 1997 beautifying the plaza and closing the area to street traffic, making it a popular center for bars and restaurants. In 2010, Hermosa Beach completed a 4.3 million dollar project, renovating upper Pier Avenue, adding trees and a landscaped median, widening sidewalks, improving lighting and adding crosswalks to make the area even more beautiful and friendly for visitors.
