About the Manhattan Beach Strand
If you have never been to the South Bay Beach Cities and are not familiar with the "Strand", here's a little bit of background to get started.
A paved path, called The Strand, runs along the coastline from Torrance Beach in the south approximately twenty miles north to Santa Monica and stops at about Pacific Palisades. There are beachfront ocean view homes along The Strand in Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach CA.
Northward from Manhattan Beach there are no homes in beachfront homes in El Segundo CA but you will find beachfront housing in Playa Del Rey and other coastal communities to the north.
In South Redondo Beach, the homes the closest that you can own a home to the oceanfront is on "The Esplanade" which in general is set further back than The Strand. The bike and walking path continues after the Redondo Pier but not the houses. People may confuse The Strand with a "boardwalk." The Strand is not considered a "boardwalk," because it is not made out of wood boards.
To keep it simple, just head down to the end of Manhattan Beach Blvd. You see the path with the amazing houses directly facing the ocean? Those homes are on The Strand. Other than the absolutely unobstructable ocean views, what makes Strand homes so unique is that they literally are "on the beach". Other beachfront property in LA County is not quite this much on the beach may be further set back with the exception of Malibu CA where homes may actually have waves breaking beneath the houses.
In any case, this is some of the most desirable and expensive real estate in Southern CA. While many buyers prefer to be south of the Manhattan Beach Pier and some even prefer North Hermosa "between the Piers" to let's say El Porto in Manhattan Beach, let's face it, it's all good. Very good.
