  • Beautiful beach with groups spread out along the water. Lots of people were playing in the water and body boarding as well. There's a quiet pier with some fishing.  more »
  • Thirteen miles west of Santa Monica on the Pacific Coast Highway, this state beach is excellent. The day lots are open and it is really beautiful. Parking fees are required.  more »
  • Great place to bird beach and people watch
  • Best to go on a weekday if you want a quiet place on the beach. During the weekend can get crowded but well worth it. Parking is easy enough, can be free or paid depending on where you park. A beautiful beach, swimming is available and surfing is great. Would recommend to anybody looking for a public beach to hang out at and enjoy the Pacific. There is a slight walk from the car to the beach but no stairs or inclines so very handicapable friendly.
