We chose this beach because of proximity to the airport, we didn't want a touristy spot, just some sand and ocean and that's what we got! It wasn't busy and felt great after a day of traveling to put toes in the sand.

I would totally add Playa del Rey beach and area to your list of places to visit during your LA stay. First off.. its very close.. you don't have to drive far for same beach experience, secondly... its where the locals hang out.. We were told to come to this beach from friends we met previous day. Its not
crowded, the local restaurants and bars along culver blvd are not packed with tourists and you can really have some time enjoying the places along while making your way to the beach. we spent easy 2-3 hrs here before we made our way to the beach to enjoy the sunset with no tourist jams and high prices. I'm so glad we were told about this place.. we were supposed to go to santa monica pier and i'm glad we stayed here and avoided the chaos and price gouging.
The beach is clean and not packed and the path along the beach is great for a walk if you want to keep your shoes free from sand. The only thing (which did not bother us), was the traffic from LAX. but it did not make an impact on our vist.

We stayed here because it was close to a clinic we were visiting. Not much to do or places to eat, but it was reasonably priced and the bus to get to downtown easy to get to.

We've been visiting the Los Angeles area more frequently as our daughter is attending college there. So, we've been exploring the various beaches. Playa Del Rey is actually my favourite. Not a lot of amenities in the surrounding area but the beach is less populated and the parking is easy. So, if you jst want to chill in the sun and watch the waves, Play Del Rey is the place.

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 becomes free. There are no real amenities just a bathroom. Nothing to eat so not good if you are hungry! there were lots of kids having Bbq and fire pits which was nice for them but I didn't feel totally safe being there alone. I guess daytime vibes would be better.

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 is really good. However, the only issue is that parking is limited here, so that may be a problem during the weekends. Otherwise it is worth spending your time here, watching the waves and enjoying the sky and the air.

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.
