Redondo Beach Travel Guide
California is home to some of the best beaches in America. One of the most southern beach towns in Los Angeles is Redondo Beach and it's a perfect place to visit on a California Vacation! Here is a full travel guide for things to do and see.
Redondo Beach is located about 20 minutes south of LAX and is part of the South Bay communities like neighboring beach towns of Manhattan Beach and Palos Verdes. This is a much quieter beach compared to the busy Santa Monica beach to the north making it a great beach to visit.
