The three Beach Cities are Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach, which lie on the south end of the Santa Monica Bay west and south of downtown Los Angeles, north of the Palos Verdes Peninsula on the Pacific Ocean in Southern California. Torrance also shares a strip of beach property in the South Bay, but is lesser known because it does not have a pier attraction.

All three are renowned for their beaches and municipal piers. They are popular with swimmers, surfers, bodyboarders, and other beachgoers. The Strand runs along the beaches and is used for cycling, running and rollerblading. The three cities share the Beach Cities Transit district.
