On the beach near the pier are numerous, permanently-set-up volleyball nets--Hermosa Beach is a big "beach volleyball" town, and both pro and amateur tournaments are held here from time to time. The beach itself is wide, and its sand is white and clean. It's a fine beach for swimming, as well. You can stroll onto the plaza across from the beach and pier areas without having to cross a busy street. The plaza is wide enough to accommodate a crowd of visitors in the summer, and even an occasional band playing a concert. Several restaurants are located on this plaza, including the casual Cantina Real, which serves reasonably priced Mexican food. There are parking lots behind the buildings of the plaza, which serve both the businesses and the beach. These lots are quite adequate most of the year, but fill up quickly on busy summer weekends. The parking lot situation is the reason that I prefer to visit Hermosa Beach during the off-season.
