Located in Los Angeles County’s South Bay region, Manhattan Beach is one of Southern California’s hotspots for activities like surfing, sunbathing, and beach volleyball. The two-mile long beach features access to the South Bay Bicycle Trail, which offers gorgeous panoramic scenery for those looking to get a good workout.
Before it became a popular spot for beach lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, Manhattan Beach used to be very narrow and sloping, spanning only about 150 feet wide. Its size increased significantly during the mid 1900s, as the construction of Marina Del Ray, the Hyperion Treatment Plant, and the Scattergood Power Plant placed large amounts of sand along the beaches towards the north. The ocean’s natural flow eventually carried these sands to Manhattan Beach, widening the area.
Every year, Manhattan Beach draws thousands of spectators, as it hosts popular events such as the International Surf Festival and the Manhattan Beach Open Volleyball Tournament. This location is definitely one of the best places to visit for those in need of an afternoon of sun, sand, and surf.
