The Hermosa Beach Sand Section makes up the majority of all homes in Hermosa Beach. The Sand Section begins west of Valley Drive and extends as far north as 35th Street and as far south as Herondo Street. (Herondo Street is named so because it is where Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach converge.) Homes in the Sand Section range from larger custom homes and original beach homes on the north end to mutli-family properties and townhouses on the south end with a mix of all property types in between. North Hermosa Beach is highly sought after for the merging beach lifestyles between Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach and also for the fact it is not a tourist stop; mainly locals are found out and about in the North sand section of Hermosa Beach.
There are a few rare pockets of the Sand Section where savvy homeowners can find estate-like lots measuring over 12,000 sf offering both large luxury homes and expansive backyards, but those properties rarely come on the market and when they do, they are amongst the record setting sale prices for homes sold in the area.
Locals and visitors alike enjoy the pristine beaches, the active, close-knit community lifestyle and the mix of casual and trend-setting establishments found in the historic town of Hermosa Beach.
