Things to do

The sand and surf of Manhattan Beach awaits!

Manhattan Beach's top temptation is, unsurprisingly, the sprawling beach itself. Expansive, tranquil, as pretty as a postcard, and within walking distance of most Manhattan Beach vacation rentals, the beach provides a home base for many a vacationer. To enjoy more than just ocean views, why not get your fill of fun at Sand Dune Park, where kids love racing down the dunes and getting rid of all their energy at the playground. Parents will adore the views of the town, and happy family times as they chase their little ones up and down the dunes.


Relax in the small-town atmosphere of Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach is literally a breath of fresh air, where crowds and congestion take a back seat to watersports and sunbathing. Most Manhattan Beach vacation rentals put you within walking distance of the beach, the pier, and the downtown area. Tickle your taste buds at restaurants that range from modern steakhouses to classic Italian restaurants or exotic Asian fusion. The kids can check out underwater animals at the Marine Studies Lab and Aquarium—a family-friendly zoo and Aquarium on the Manhattan Beach Pier. Or, you can just enjoy the charms of the sandy beaches.


Hit Manhattan Beach for laid-back sunbathing

Thanks to its Southern Californian location, Manhattan Beach brings you perfect weather for a healthy dose of Vitamin D as you soak up the sun all year. Even during winter, Manhattan Beach temperatures usually hover between 50 and 70, ideal for exploring the downtown area or enjoying a glass of wine at a local winery. If sun, surf, and sand are your thing, summer is the time to visit. Daytime temps usually climb to the mid-80s, but thanks to the sea breeze, Manhattan Beach is arguably the most comfortable summer vacation rentals spot in L.A.

Natural features

Stay on a sand dune in Manhattan Beach

Today, Sand Dune Park is the only remaining exposed dune in Manhattan Beach. Before humans made their mark, the entire area comprised of sand dunes. Developers leveled many of the dunes in the 1920s and 30s, covering most of them in buildings, sidewalks, and roads. Manhattan’s dune roots still influence the vibe of the community and are the reason why the entire town slopes down toward the ocean. Conveniently situated near local vacation rentals, Sand Dune Park hosts rare floral species to see and explore.
