Flight path for LAX, if you are seeking wave crashing, peace and harmony keep driving. Redondo Beach or Santa Monica, otherwise said drive north or south, are better choices.

I like going to that beach, as I can park my park on the side of the street for free (just watch out for the red markings, where you're not supposed to park). The other nice thing is, that it is right by the LAX...More

I am not sure about tent camping. I know there are several fire pits that a lot of people use. I do not know about the cat dog situation.

Short distance can take a long time due to traffic. Check waze for travel time to beach from LAX during layover and you can judge accordingly.
