Welcome to Redondo Beach
Fresh ocean air and elegance abound in this serene beach town
Quiet seaside ambiance mixes with a relaxed luxury to create the elegant coastal town of Redondo Beach. Here you’ll find yourself slowing down, perhaps even swaying like the palm trees in the gentle ocean breeze. Settle into the sandy shore on a sunny afternoon or wander the famous horseshoe-shaped Redondo Pier, and you’ll be transported into the easy lifestyle of Redondo Beach. Homes here were made to capture the magic and whimsy of coastal life, with luxurious, light-filled beach condos and waterfront stunners on the Esplanade, complete with rooftop patios, lushly landscaped balconies, and plenty of skylights to invite in the glorious California sunshine.
This charming coastal town began crafting its image as a glamorous resort destination as far back as the late 19th century. With the opening of the grand Hotel Redondo, in 1890, Redondo Beach arrived in style on the resort scene. Dazzling visitors with a stunning display of lush landscaping and sunbathed luxury, the hotel established this tranquil beach town as the exclusive getaway of wealthy Angelinos. Today, residents know Redondo Beach is more than a destination – it’s a coveted way of life.
