Learn to surf in Manhattan Beach – the “pearl of South Bay”.

Manhattan Beach boasts gorgeous beaches, an iconic Pier, and a lively downtown area. It combines classic surf-town charm with a classy style all its own.

Locals and tourists alike are drawn to this area. Due to its incredible attractions and scenery, it’s also a popular spot for second homes. The wide, sandy beaches are great for soaking up the sun, surfing or playing beach volleyball. A little aquarium (with free admission!) known as ‘The Roundhouse’ is located on the Pier.

Meet us at the Pier

The Pier is one of the best spots to learn to surf in Manhattan Beach . The gently sloped shore allows beginners to practice riding waves where they can still touch the ground. The vibe in the water is typically friendly and welcoming.

The nearby parking lots, bathrooms, and volleyball nets add to the appeal of this beach, especially for families. However, if you’re looking for a more laid-back spot in Manhattan Beach, check our favorite spot to teach lessons in the area – El Porto!
