Take a Bike Ride on The Boardwalk

The paved path running the full length of Hermosa Beach’s coastline known as the Strand is the perfect place to get to know someone while enjoying the sounds and sights of the sea, but if you or your date are feeling adventurous, then add an e-bike rental or a tandem bike rental to the equation!

The Strand is open to walkers, skateboarders, roller skaters, and bikers, but what better way is there to get in synch with your date then by cruising together on a tandem bike? Whether you bike the entire Strand or can’t get past finding your balance on the bike with your date, you’re sure to have a blast trying.

Rent Paddle Boards and Adventure on the Sea

If you’re in Hermosa Beach, then you’re obligated to at the very least dip your toes in the Pacific.

While renting paddle boards and getting on the water may sound difficult if you haven’t done it before, it’s actually easy with a little instruction and a great experience to share with a date. We’ve written about getting started with paddleboarding before, but if you have any questions about getting on the water then we will be happy to tell you everything we know once you visit our shop for your paddleboard rental!

Play Some Beach Volleyball

Hermosa Beach is a classic Southern California Beach town thanks to its warm community, beautiful beach, and obsession with beach volleyball.

In fact, there are dozens of public courts all along Hermosa Beach that operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. Whether you’re on a group date or are just looking for a friendly game of 1v1, Hermosa Beach has a place for you to play volleyball or any beach game for that matter!

Sunset Walk on the Strand and Pier

There’s nothing quite like a beach sunset, and both the Hermosa Beach Pier and the Strand are the perfect places to walk off into it with your date

Hermosa Beach’s pier is one of the best in Southern California. Don’t believe us? Just watch La La Land and see for yourself! The pier is the perfect place to hear the ocean, feel the sea breeze, and watch the sun dip below the horizon, and since it’s over 1,100 feet long you’ll have plenty of space to walk with your date.

If you want to walk further than the pier offers, then walk down the Strand as the sun sets and choose a bar or restaurant to enjoy with your date while doing it!

Drinks and Dinner by the Sea

Of course, Hermosa Beach is known for its vibrant nightlife and excellent restaurants, so if you’re looking for a classic date consisting of drinks and dinner then Hermosa Beach is the place for you!
