Beach Cities is a nickname for a coastal area of Los Angeles County comprising Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach.[1] It is located 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. Torrance also shares a strip of beach property in the South Bay, but is lesser known because it does not have a pier attraction.[citation needed]
