Welcome to Redondo Beach

Part of Santa Monica Bay and home to ample outdoor recreation and Seaside Lagoon
Redondo Beach is part of one of three communities that comprise the stunning Santa Monica Bay cities and is famous for its gentle Mediterranean winters, salty Seaside Lagoon, historic pier areas, and sandy beaches, and plenty of oceanside activities to keep wandering types entertained. The locality has a unique backstory because it was the site of the Old Salt Lake, a place where Native Americans and enterprising homesteaders gathered to collect salt to mine and trade. When the mining stopped, Redondo Beach became the site of the first water taxis, floating casinos, and other fun businesses back in the 1930s. To this day, Redondo Beach is home to ocean amusements and plenty of recreational pleasures. 
In terms of architectural style, Redondo Beach consists of opulent townhomes and typically Spanish Colonial homes in the single-family homes in town. As part of the Santa Monica Bay, the single-family homes are also in Santa Barbara and Mission styles harkening back to the Spanish Colonial template. The design has many motifs of stucco walls, open spaces, rich gardens, and Mansard roofs with clay-like tiles. Homeowners enjoy the open air and walls that bring the outside close to them.
