The Sand Section is bordered by Manhattan Beach, Valley Drive, Redondo Beach and the beautiful Pacific.

Single-family homes dominate this section north of Read More 19th Street with lots ranging from about 2,000 to 4,500 square feet. Due to the slightly younger demographic, there is a wide variety of homes especially south of the Pier where one can find a slew of town-homes, condominiums and income properties, thus resulting in great opportunities for purchasing an investment property as well.

The pinnacle of the Hermosa Sand Section home would be the Strand properties. These homes range in size and style from modern mansions to original beach cottages.

Furthermore, walk streets in the Hermosa Sand Section are shorter and flatter compared to Manhattan Beach which makes for getting to know your neighbors much easier. Famous streets like Circle Drive, are known for large spectacular estates, as well as some tucked away in the valley near the Hermosa Valley School.

Up and down the Sand Section are classic old-school delis like Boccatos with a gourmet meat market, and the Green Store with awesome sandwiches and a nice wine and beer selection just steps from the sand. Live entertainment is also close at hand in this section with The Comedy and Magic Club where one can bump into Jay Leno at any given time, or the Lighthouse on the Pier, as featured in the movie Lala Land, for nightly music.
