Outdoor Activity · Hidden Gem
Alamitos Bay is an inlet on the Pacific Ocean coast of southern California, United States, between the cities of Long Beach and Seal Beach, at the outlet of the San Gabriel River.
The bay is named for the Spanish word for 'little poplars'.
Alamitos Bay is protected by both the natural sand spit Peninsula and the Long Beach Breakwater. It is divided from the San Gabriel River and Seal Beach by a pair of jetties. The natural geography has been heavily altered by dredging and landfill subsequent to development.
Alimitos Bay contains Marine Stadium, created for Olympic rowing events.
Naples, a collection of three islands, is entirely within Alamitos Bay.

  • The beach was really big and is great for a beach day out, though the waters were a little chilly. There is also lots of free parking on the surrounding streets.  more »
  • The thing I likes about this beach the most was the fact that you could drive right up to the beach and walk on. The beach itself and the facilities are not very clean but they are convenient.  more »
