Where The Esplanade gives way to Calle Miramar and Paseo de la Playa at the round-about, there is a small area bordered by Catalina Ave., Palos Verdes Blvd. and Paseo de la Playa called the “Lower Riviera”. Locals also like to dub this area “The Riv”. The draw here is the proximity to the beach, The Village and the lower part of the Palos Verdes hill. Most homes are SFRs that sit on larger than typical lots for the proximity to the beach. Many homes enjoy sweeping views of the ocean that stretch as far as the Pacific Palisades. There are numerous streets ending in cul-de-sacs, which limits thru-traffic. Residents enjoy that “park-and-walk-everywhere” ocean-view lifestyle at a significant value over traditional “Sand Section” living in neighboring Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach. The Riviera Village is a huge draw for nearby residents. It is a popular hub of South Redondo community events, boutique shopping and dining options, and daily conveniences.
