Hermosa Beach Sand Section Info

Hermosa Beach is a relatively small (approximately 1.4 square miles), affluent beach town in the South Bay region of Los Angeles.  As one might guess from the name, the Hermosa Beach Sand section encompasses the area of the city closest to the beach and includes downtown Hermosa and Pier Plaza as well as the pier itself. 

Interestingly, of the three beach cities with beach in their names - the others being Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach - only Hermosa Beach actually owns its beach whereas LA County owns the other two.  It's that wide, flat beach that attracts so many to Hermosa for sun-bathing and beach volleyball.  And, of course, there's The Strand, that long paved beachfront walking/biking path that extends into Manhattan Beach in the north and is home to the priciest real estate in Hermosa, with home prices regularly exceeding $10 million for newer construction.

The housing mix in the Hermosa Sand section is quite diverse, with plenty of single family homes, townhomes and income properties.  There are, as noted above, the uber-pricey Strand homes that literally sit on the beach and, naturally, enjoy unblockable ocean views.  There are also walkstreet homes, mainly in the south end as well as 30th and 31st Streets in the north end that are also viewed as highly desirable.

In addition, we have been seeing for some time now a spillover effect with homes and buildable lots in Strand-adjacent locations like along Hermosa Avenue starting to command high prices as well.

School Info

The public school options are the same throughout Hermosa beach, with the tykes going to Hermosa View for K-2 and older children going to Hermosa Valley for grades 3-8.  Since Hermosa Beach does not have its own high school, the options are either Mira Costa in Manhattan Beach or Redondo Union in South Redondo (Hermosa residents can choose either high school option).

Hermosa View is located off of Prospect Avenue in the northeast quadrant of Hermosa and Hermosa Valley is located off of Valley near Pier Avenue.   Like most beach cities schools, the scores at both schools rank extremely high.

The 3-year average scores for these schools based on their 2011-2013 Academic Performance Index (API) scores are set forth below.  The API is an annual measure of a school's test score performance calculated by the California Department of Education and is a single number on a scale of 200 to 1,000 that indicates how well students in a school performed on the previous spring’s tests.

School API* School Web site
Hermosa View 949 hbcsd.org/hermosa view
Hermosa Valley 939 hbcsd.org/Hermosa+Valley
Redondo Union High School 851 RedondoUnoin.org
Mira Costa High School 912 MiraCostaHigh.org

*Note: State-mandated changes to the API have resulted in no new API scores for 2014- 2016.
