Hermosa is a beautiful place to live! The beach community is wonderful and people are laid back. Overall, it is a safe area to live and I am comfortable walking around at any hour of the night. Like any place in Southern California near the beach, the cost of living is very high.

Wonderful city with lots of health and wellness activities. There is always something to do and it is a very inviting community. Once you live here you are forever grateful and appreciative of the breathtaking views and scenery it has to offer. There is always beautiful weather, and most days are great for the beach. Waking up and seeing the Pacific Ocean is definitely something that nobody takes for granted here.
