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.

Known to locals, this beach is clean with well-maintained bicycle and walking paths. Home to USA Volleyball and amateur volleyball players, fun to watch. Crowded on weekends. Lots of sail boats when windy. Good surf waves. So close to LAX you can watch planes take...More
