Discover why Downtown Manhattan Beach is called “Heaven in Flip Flops”

Welcome to Downtown Manhattan Beach, the “Heartbeat” of the beautiful beach town that was founded in 1912. The “Pearl of the South Bay”, Downtown MB is home to fashionably chic shopping, award winning restaurants and chefs, mouth-watering dining options steps from the beach, and amazing sunsets. Take a stroll with the kids to the Roundhouse Aquarium at the end of the historic Manhattan Beach Pier and make sure to look down so you don’t miss the Volleyball Walk of Fame. Sit by the fireplace in Metlox Plaza, rent bikes to ride the paved beach-front bike path, rent surfboards or cruise the water on a stand-up paddle-board, or just roll up your pant legs and collect seashells at low tide. Spa treatments, salon services and yoga workouts with a view are on every block. If you time it right, you can even catch the “Wimbledon of Beach Volleyball”, the Manhattan Open or “The Granddaddy of all Paddle Board Races”, the Catalina Classic!ty
