From Playa Vista to Manhattan Beach: Which LA Beach Town is Right for You?

Southern California Is Known for Its Charming, Beachside Towns; but How Do You Decipher Which Town Is Best for You?

The Southern California coast is dotted with idyllic communities that offer appealing and unique laid-back beach lifestyles. Whether you are itching to come for a visit or are considering making one of these towns your next home, we’re here to help you. We’ve put together a few of the most prominent beach towns so that you can decide which seaside oasis is the best fit for you.

Playa Vista

Located outside of Los Angeles, Playa Vista is one of Southern California’s most sought-after cities. With its perfect location, Playa Vista is in close proximity to LAX and is only a mile and a half to gorgeous sandy beaches. This town prioritizes sustainability, encouraging residents to walk while exploring shops and restaurants, using eco-friendly building materials, and implementing innovative water conservation techniques. Rain or shine, the farmer’s market is a great way to spend Saturday mornings while supporting local businesses.

Playa Del Rey

Playa del Rey is known for having a down-to-earth atmosphere where everyone is welcome. This quaint town is filled with an array of shops, boutiques, and cafés that are sure to suit everyone’s needs. The Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail is a 22-mile paved bike trail that weaves by Playa del Rey, taking cyclists on an adventure along Southern California’s very best beaches and ocean views. If you’re not in the mood to bike, you can still enjoy the sunshine from Playa del Rey Beach and take advantage of the firepits, volleyball courts, and other activities.

Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach has a larger population than both Playa Vista and Playa del Rey and offers two miles of pristine California coast. Manhattan Beach is known for its upscale real estate and gorgeous homes that dot the hillside. The heart of the city is downtown, a street lined with boutiques, restaurants, delis, coffee shops, and other stores. Manhattan Beach Boulevard is the perfect place for a night out, whether you are in the mood for drinks, dinner, or dancing. A quick walk down the waterfront takes you to the historic Manhattan Beach Pier—the perfect spot to catch the sunset.
