It was foggy but what a beautiful area. Nice vista, surf and good vibes. Great mountains to drive in close by. A So Cal staple and a must visit when in L.A. area

Abundant, affordable parking with decent bathrooms. This is a great place to watch sufers, enjoy the breeze. Far away from the city but close enough to be accessible. Away from the crowds of the Santa Monica Pier and the cost of Malibu. After a nice day at the beach, you can take a long scenic drive through Topanga Canyon.

we stopped by to see the sunset as it is one of the few beaches where the sun sets over the ocean this time of year. the wind surfers were out in force and the sun set was awesome. A small beach, but free parking on the roadside. A little less crowded than other beaches as we found parking easily. Go for the sunsets as it is a great view reflecting off the water.

We visited late on a sunny Saturday and the beach had surfers and families, but still was peaceful. The shores are a bit rocky, so beware when wading. The beach offers great views of the Los Angeles area. We saw pelicans diving for their food which was rather entertaining. Parking was free on the side of the road, but there is also parking on site for a small fee. Topango State Beach is a short and lovely drive from Los Angeles, and was devoid of the freak shows found on some of the other beaches.

If you're tempted by peeling point break waves beware of the local stink eye and negative energy.
