Redondo Beach is one of the three Beach Cities located in the South Bay in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The population was 66,748 at the 2010 census, up from 63,261 at the 2000 census. The city is located in the South Bay region of the greater Los Angeles area.

Redondo Beach was originally part of the 1785 Rancho San Pedro Spanish land grant that later became the South Redondo area. The city's territory has an unusual shape including an area along the beach (South Redondo Beach) and another strip inland from Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach (North Redondo Beach). The primary attractions include Municipal Pier and the sandy beach, popular with tourists and a variety of sports enthusiasts including surfers and open water swimmers.

Beach Cities

The three Beach Cities are Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach, known locally as the South Bay, which lie on the south end of the Santa Monica Bay west and south of downtown Los Angeles, north of the Palos Verdes Peninsula on the Pacific Ocean in Southern California. All three are renowned for their beaches and all three have municipal piers. They are popular with open water swimmers, surfers, bodyboarders and other beachgoers. The strand runs along the beaches and is used for cycling, running and rollerblading. The three cities share the Beach Cities Transit district.
