Hermosa-Beach is a coastal community just west of greater Los Angeles along Highway 1. Hermosa means "beautiful" in Spanish and this clean, fresh beachfront town certainly lives up to its name! Home to one of the most beautiful beaches in southern California, visitors and residents enjoy swimming, surfing, skateboarding and boogeyboarding. Relax and soak up the rays on the beach, or enjoy a game of volleyball or Frisbee. Hermosa Beach has a paved strip running parallel to the beach called "The Strand," for hiking, jogging, biking or skating. You can find almost any type of food in Hermosa Beach, and you'll find exciting nightlife such as comedy clubs, nightclubs and dancing. Hermosa Beach is also home to several special events, such as the annual Surf Festival that attracts participants from around the world. Volleyball tournaments are routinely televised from Hermosa Beach, and it's not uncommon to find crews on the beach filming scenes for movies and television. The average daily temperature in Hermosa Beach is 70 degrees in summer and 55 degrees in winter. This, along with the surf, sand and sea, graceful palm trees, gentle ocean breezes and stunning sunsets makes Hermosa Beach a vacation paradise!

Hermosa Beach Weather & Climate

Southern California along the Pacific Coast enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. As with most of the state of California, summers are dry due to a semi-permanent high pressure system that sits in the Pacific Ocean and holds storm tracks well to the north. Warm air moving over the cool ocean in summer creates fog that moves in during the evening and early morning hours but almost always dissipates by midday. The rainy season is November through early April, but this area receives only approximately 12 inches of precipitation per year. Some flash flooding can occur when large amounts of rain occur in winter over a period of one or two days, and in summertime, very dry conditions in the higher elevations means forest fires are always a threat.
