Hermosa Beach Strand and Pier
Hermosa Beach is renowned for its volleyball tournaments and players, many of whom have won gold medals in the Olympics. With 71 beach volleyball courts, you will likely catch a game. The Strand can be busy on weekends, so it’s best to arrive before noon. Be prepared to share the trail with fast-moving bicyclists and joggers, though they are mostly respectful of pedestrians. It’s a good idea to check the weather via the beach webcam before you go.
