Small Town Charm of North Manhattan Beach / El Porto

Welcome to North Manhattan Beach, more commonly known as El Porto.  This section of Manhattan Beach is located 3 miles south of LAX.

The main road through El Porto is Highland ave.  Highland Ave is lined with quaint-small town stores, restaurants with outdoor patios, vibrant bars, hotels, gyms, laundromats, spas and liquor stores.

Take a downhill walk west from Highland and you will end up on the strand.  In this part of Manhattan Beach the strand is separated into two paths, one for bikes and one for walkers.  The bike path is located right against the sand.  This stretch of beach is home to world class volleyball, great surfing and a cafe located right on the sand.

The El Porto / north Manhattan Beach real estate ranges from older-rustic homes to the more modern beach front mansions.  El Porto has it’s own charm, making it stand out amongst the other south bay neighborhoods.
