Located in the westernmost part in Manhattan Beach. The Manhattan Beach Sand Section gets its name for well being so close to the sand. The Manhattan Beach Sand Section is very walkable. Day or night you’ll see folks walking their dogs taking a jog down the Strand or strolling through downtown. The Manhattan Beach Sand Section has a very European feel to it, with cafes, restaurants and exciting nightlife within walking distance from the quiet residential streets. Properties West of Highland Avenue are closer to the beach and usually priced a bit higher. And compromise to living in the Sand Section is their homes are built with only a three foot setback so you’re very close to your next-door neighbors likely to have no yard at all.

One fun fact about our beaches is that in the 1920s and 1930s the soft sand from Manhattan Beach was sent to Hawaii to line the tropical shores of Waikiki’s resorts.
