We wanted a good safe place to park and a nice beach to enjoy and this place fit the bill. It also has bathrooms and a place to buy snacks and cold drinks, so that's a plus. Parking was $18.00 so be prepared for that. I only wish they had umbrellas for rent but bring your own or a nice... More

Definitively recommended, not as crowded as Santa Monica, or the major Malibu state beaches. Nice easy access parking lot. Facilities available with bathrooms, and showers (as of this last Labor day weekend they were working!). Parking felt a little pricey at $15 but it was worth it. We spent a wonderful day at this hidden gem.

This beach is huge. You need to buy a day parking pass for $9 even if you only want to stay a couple of hours. It is not so crowded although you need to walk quite a bit until you reach the shoreline. There is a small restaurant at the parking lot too - good food but a bit pricey.... More

Took the family here on Saturday afternoon. Parking was $15, and we ventured to the lot north of the entrance. There was plenty of parking, so no problem finding a space. We got a nice close spot. It was just a short walk to the beach which was awesome. With three small kids and stuff the lug to the beach,... More

This beach is really lovely- very clean. Bathrooms are your typical beach bathroom type. Parking is very expensive, but you might be able to find street parking if you really try. I love the area because it is cute and has many small cafe/restaurants around. I haven't been to any of them, so I can't comment on their quality, but... More

But if you turn to temescal canyon road you can find a free parking both sides of the road. Also you can... More

Easy access to the beach from the city, this beach offers quiet shoreline strolling or busier areas with restaurants and attractions. Will Rogers State Beach is perfect for romantic walks, enjoying the sand and surf, relaxing and, of course, shooting sunset photos. So easy to find this long beach where historic highway U.S. Route 66 (aka Santa Monica Boulevard in... More
