This is a great place to workout! I've seen college and professional athletes train here going up and down the Sand Dunes! This hill is no joke! Be prepared for an amazing workout!

If you fancy yourself an athlete you owe it to yourself to run up the sand dune in Sand Dune Park. Not many can make it running the whole way. If the sand is too tough you can take the steps, still a good workout.

This is a wonderful place for muscular and cardio workouts. Nestled behind the residential neighborhood of Manhattan Beach, you'll find this hidden gem. I first visited the Dunes in or around New Year of 2004. I had done a New Year's Day family workout with...More

I am a local and discovered that working the sand dunes or stairs adjacent to the dunes have improved my workout and made a difference. Challenge yourself. Try it and you'll keep coming back.

Great place to run up a moderate hill and get your heart rate going. Make sure you take water. Safe and easy for little ones also.

I'm one of those who remember the days when the dune was open to everyone. No more. Access to the actual sand dune is very restricted bye the MB Parks dept, and requires paid reservations. The adjacent staircases are free for public access. So ore...More
