Playa del Rey (Spanish for "Beach of the King" or "King's beach") is an affluent beachside community in the Westside of the city of Los Angeles, California. The rolling hills are the result of ancient, wind-blown, compacted sand dunes which rise up to 125 feet above sea level, originally called and often referred to as The Del Rey Hills or "The Bluffs". These dunes run parallel to the coastline, from Playa del Rey, all the way south to Palos Verdes. The community is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, Marina del Rey and Ballona Creek to the north, Ballona Wetlands and Playa Vista to the northeast, Westchester to the east, and Los Angeles International Airport and El Segundo to the south.
The vast majority of land in Playa del Rey is zoned for residential purposes only. It is known for its large beachside estates. Only portions of Manchester Blvd, Pershing Drive and Culver Blvd have businesses—mainly restaurants and a pharmacy—and offices mixed in with residential buildings. The average household income is 126,005, which is a high figure for the state.
