Portofino Hotel & Yacht Club is a premier hotel, one of the few that dot the idyllic stretch along the Redondo Beach, just a few minutes’ drive from LA.
The hotel’s proximity to LA and Manhattan Beach makes the hotel a base for visitors keen on exploring the panorama of the Marina. To get to this hotel, the current address is 260 Portofino Way, Redondo Beach, California, 90277, USA.
The hotel’s strategic location makes it picture perfect for the numerous attractions that are close. A good place to start is Redondo Beach itself, ideal for a day’s exploration with beach games, swimming, beach sports and a host of outdoor activities to enjoy. From family activities to interacting with the beach side community, there’s a lot to engage in while at the hotel.
Popular area activities include yoga on the beach, a series of musical concerts and performances during summer as well as farmers market where guests can purchase high quality organic food. Redondo Beach is a cycling hotspot, so rent a bicycle and ride as much as your legs can. The bike trail is rather even, so you are less-likely to encounter hitches.
Outdoor enthusiasts will be awed by sport fishing, an activity that allows you to catch a wide array of fishes such as the yellowtail and mackerel. The other alternative for adrenaline junkies is to take a speedboat ride that whizzes by every hour over the weekend and public holidays.
