This is a pretty chill beach. Not a lot of overwhelming foot traffic, but if you're looking to relax without much noise then this is a pretty good option.

Nice beach for a game of volleyball or ride along the cycle path. Plane watch as the planes take off from LAX right over head. Nice clean beach to picnic on or swim in the waves.

Always visit here when in town. Enjoy walking on the beach sand and paved trail with the ocean breeze. I've seen dolphins in the area. Clean and vibrant beach with beautiful ocean front homes along the paved trail. Colorful evening sunsets worth seeing.

A very beautiful beach, much less crowded than the nearby Santa Monica or Venice Beach, with the exception of the planes that will pass just a few meters over your head because of the proximity to the airport. The surrounding area is really petty as...More
