With a population just shy of 30,000, Manhattan Beach has become the pre-eminent beach town address in greater Los Angeles. Whether drawn by the beautiful beaches, the active lifestyle, the charming neighborhoods and the idyllic central downtown or the award winning blue ribbon schools, Manhattan Beach has become the “it” location in greater Southern California, for families, singles, second home buyers and empty nesters. With easy access to West Los Angles, downtown Los Angeles and LAX, Manhattan Beach has a convenience that is missing in Malibu, which is the other high end beach community in greater Los Angeles.
Where you choose to live in Manhattan Beach is largely driven by how much land you desire and whether you want to live vertically (typically 2 to 3 stories) on smaller lots with proximity to the beach or horizontally on larger lots (typically 1 to 2 stories) a bit further back from the water. There are 6 major submarkets in Manhattan Beach, with many other smaller submarkets. The major submarkets are the Manhattan Beach Sand Section (Area 142), the Manhattan Beach Tree Section (Area 143) the Manhattan Beach Hill Section (Area 144), the Manhattan Beach Village (Area 145) , Manhattan Beach Heights/Liberty Village Section (Area 146) and Manhattan Beach Mira Costa Section (Area 147).
