Good views with a great walk/run/bike path. The beach is a good place to escape the larger crowds at other spots. Good for for a family beach day although parking can be rough.

On clear days you can see up the coastline for miles, an amazing view of the Palos Verdes Pennisula, and Catalina Island. On cloudy days, just as beautiful, but views are shadowed - great way to spend some time either way.

Living in Torrance, there's just something nice about going to our own hometown beach. 4th of July offers another memorable opportunity.
