I would like to hear some honest reviews on Redondo beach, Hermosa Beach, and El Segundo. Are the beaches clean? What demographic age group most frequent each one? Which ones are the most crowded, and when? And, what are the best neighborhoods to live near each beach area ... Thanks!

Hermosa Beach is a party town, it really is. So you'll usually find a lot of young people hanging around those parts. Redondo Beach is slightly cheaper, but you'll find a variety of age ranges. El Segundo is to north for me to go, I don't really go past Hermosa haha. But I think Dockweiller is in El Segundo, and it's a beautiful beach, if you don't mind the smell. My favorite beach in the South Bay, however, is just Torrance Beach. I personally love the beaches in the South Bay. I think Torrance is your safest bet, they have homes/apartments ranging in costs. And most of Torrance is nice if you stay west of Western.

Yeah, I'm an old South Bay local and I agree with your assessments overall. I grew up in Hermosa BEach and it was party town back then as well. Manhattan Beach is also nice and a little more pricey than Hermosa. Though both have their multimillion $ strand homes. The Manhattan croud seems a little more mature than the Hermosa one. Both cater toward college age kids (animal house at the beach), yuppies and weathly beach property owners. There aren't as many schools or families as their used to be.

Torrance is also my favorite now. That is where we take our family when in the area.

There is, actually, a separate El Segundo beach from Dockweiller. It's about a mile south and it doesn't smell. It's at the bottom of Grand Ave. Fairly secluded and uncrowded. Plans are in the works to put in a bathroom.

There was an attempt some years ago to build a man made reef off of El Segundo beach by dropping 1 ton sand bags in a V-shape to generate waves. Alas, it was abandoned a couple years ago.

They are very clean...usually rated "A" during dry weather..

El Segundo and the section right along the Airport between Playa Del Rey and the Northern tip of Manhttan Beach isnt a very good beach...try a bit further south into manhattan, hermosa etc. You will find a lot of sand there and good conditions for ocean activities....

Lets put it this way....last weekend they shut down Vista Del Mar by the airport due to gang violence.
