'The Pearl of the South Bay', as Manhattan Beach is often called, is located in South Bay on the Pacific coast of California. Manhattan Beach is famous for its expensive houses, rich residents, volleyball tournaments and surfing. The scenic pier built into the bay allows fishing during the year and the vast beach with its recreational area invites tourists and locals to enjoy sunbathing and numerous other activities.
The weather is perfect all year, so even winter is suitable for spending the holidays in Manhattan Beach. During the warmer season, the sun loves to shine, but the ‘June Gloom’ can scatter a bit of fog over the beach. This sunny destination is well connected with major cities and can be reached by plane via LAX Airport. Manhattan Beach is in the Pacific Time Zone (GMT-8).
The pier offers astonishing views of the city and is also a very popular spot for fishing. The International Surfing Festival is held here and the pier, which also features an aquarium, is the ideal place to watch the sunset. In addition to hosting the AVP Beach Volleyball Championship which is held between July and August every year, the pier was used as a location for films such as Airborne, Jerry Maguire and Tequila Sunrise as well as various television shows
