Beginning Tuesday, September 6, Manhattan Beach residents and businesses are being asked to suspend outdoor irrigation for 15 days, as the Metropolitan Water District (Metropolitan) shuts down an imported water pipe critical for emergency repairs. Like neighboring beaches, volleyball is a popular activity here. There are up to 100 sand volleyball courts available for people to connect and enjoy in Manhattan Beach. Los Angeles County lifeguard stations are spaced along the beach, and behind it is a busy 22-mile long bike path that connects to Santa Monica and Torrance.
The marine studies laboratory and the Roundhouse aquarium at the end of the dock are free and open to the public every day. If you're looking for a night out, there will be several bars open to the public around the tournament with food available for purchase on site. VIP ticket holders will have food and refreshments included in their ticket. The bike path is a great way to explore Manhattan Beach and its surrounding areas.
Stops along the way include Hermosa Beach Pier Avenue, Downtown Manhattan Beach, Manhattan Village Mall, Douglas Green Line station, downtown El Segundo, and Aviation Green Line station.
