Lots of Sandy Beachs and Surf

Acres of surf and sand for all kinds of beach activities. Just park your car and plan to have hours of fun with your beach toys and riding the surf.

This is a great beach area with a smaller beach on the harbor that is great for tiny kids. The issue is parking. Once you get past the two main parking lots at the top of the beach by the harbor, the city has taken most of the street parking away for bike lanes. It's difficult to get to locations... More

This is our favorite day trip beach! It is huge, wide and has lifeguards. There are 3 bathrooms that are clean. It's a quiet, family or couple-oriented beach. Also, its very pet friendly. I've always felt safe here. Parking can be tricky. There is a parking lot at the entrance end, which I guess is fine if you plan on... More

This is an average California beach except it's a bit quieter and not much to do around. There are no hotels or resorts around, which is nice. There was a small parking lot, which was not full- this would be a surprise for a beach in California during summer times nowadays. It's not a bad get-away place for people who... More

This is a very nice beach. There is a bathroom in close proximity and we also found parking in the lot on a Saturday. It was windy and a little chilly in July I had to wear my sweat shirt and the water was freezing, but that didn't stop the kids from going in. Life guards kept a really good... More

There was a smell permeating the whole beach the other day...like decaying seal or something so it kind of put a damper on being able to enjoy. In about 400 square feet of space, there were about 15 dogs of varying sizes. All of the dogs were on leashes, but when the dog pooped, we saw that most of the... More

Surprisingly clean for a SoCal beach, with soft sand that's a challenge (in a good way) for running in. Deep front-to-back, so there's plenty of space, and it was nearly deserted both days I visited (albeit they were weekdays in April). Lacks amenities and businesses, though, as this is a residential area.

This is a wonderful beach primarily for locals. There is hardly any parking and no facilities. Buy or rent a property and you can walk or bike to this great beach!
