I was early picking someone up at LAX and I thought it might be nice to walk on the beach here. I was annoyed that I had to pay the full $8 daily rate even though I arrived at 6pm a few hours before it...More

Loved the wide beach. Lots of areas to change, shower and cook. The best part was the long and wide bike path. Wish I had a bike with me as I would have enjoyed riding and watching the sun come down.

I have occasionally been on the beach now and then. It is never really crowded like Santa Monica, so the environment here is chilled and relaxed, especially when you come for the sunset. If you are into bikes, that's a bonus because the bike path...More

Beautiful beach with soft sand and not a lot of people. We really enjoyed seeing the planes take off from LAX as well. Perfect temperature, great breeze and very good waves.

Of course, you have to like beaches! Great concrete walkway/ bike Way! Sand is soft and beach is amazing. You can stroll and enjoy the water views or enjoy the beach houses... wishing one was yours!

If you like hearing planes fly over every 2 mins then this is the beach for you. We went because all the reviews talked about how nice and quite (not over crowded) it was, and how beautiful it was (which it was). But on our...More

You have to include a stroll to this beach, spend the day, or hope to find a nearby rental or stay at the small Inn at Playa del Rey. It is not like other area beaches; it holds some different mysteries of the ocean since...More

Most beaches "close" at 10pm in & around the LA coast. People do walk the beach at all hours, but can't be seen as "loitering". I believe this is true in PDR. This beach is part of and adjacent to Dockweiler Beach... a... More
