I'm planning a trip to Long Beach in July in between trips for 1 night. My main purpose is to go to a nice sandy beach to relax. Is there a sandy beach within walking distance from the hotels in Long Beach? I won't have a car and would like a short walk to the beach. I checked on line and found Belmont shore beach but seems a bit far from Long Beach and cannot find good hotels around there.
I considered other beaches ie Manhattan, Marina Del Ray etc but Long Beach is the best location to fit my trip for one night stay between LA and SF. Any suggestions?
