  • It was a spur of the moment decision to stop by Topanga, but we did not regret it! Getting to capture a sunset like this one? Count me in!

  • Feels like a locals spot. No tourists. Lots of surfers. Dirty sand. The smell of cannabis wafting through the air. Bathrooms with issues. Actual California girls and guys basking in the sun. Kind of perfect if you want a real California beach hang. Plus, ADA parking right at the sand and mats to take your mobility device across the sand close to the water.
