Hermosa Beach Public Parking Guide

There isn’t a better place to enjoy Southern California’s famous sunshine, coast, and culture than Hermosa Beach. You can be sure that there is enough sun and fun for everyone, but there isn’t always enough parking within the 1.43 square miles that the city of Hermosa Beach covers. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re coming to Hermosa Beach for a sunrise run on the Strand or sunset drinks near the pier, every great Hermosa Beach visit starts by finding a parking spot. There’s no need to panic over Hermosa Beach parking though because the Beach Bound team has a quick guide to public parking below! Check it out, and if you can’t find a spot near the beach then don’t haul your beach gear across the city. Stop by the Beach Bound shop instead for Hermosa Beach’s fastest beach and bike rentals!
