Beach Cool

Downtown Manhattan Beach is buzzing with noteworthy shops and eateries.

Manhattan Beach, dubbed a beach volleyball mecca (Olympian Kerry Walsh-Jennings plays here), is a once sleepy beach town now bustling with a thriving culinary and shopping scene.

Situated thirty minutes by car from the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the Palm tree-lined city offers specialty clothing boutiques such as Third Gallery with items from silk, flowy blouses by Diane von Furstenberg and dresses by Milly, and home décor shops including Waterleaf Interiors with a large selection of throw pillows and fabric swatches. Other major flagship boutiques include Trina Turk with mini frocks in playful, retro patterns to beach cover-ups and evening clutches.

Hungry? head to Manhattan Beach Post (aka “MB Post”) for fresh, seasonal creations by chef/owner David LeFevre (who formerly worked as Executive Chef of Water Grill in Los Angeles). The menu spans roasted brussel sprouts and pomegranate couscous to steamed mussels and White Oak-grilled skirt steak.
