When in LA, I don't really like driving too far just to get to a beach. Came here in September, weather was still in the 80s and sunny skies every day. I guess I was fairly lucky as I came during the weekday and it was fairly quiet and really nice to be able to have the beach fairly empty... More

I returned to Will Rogers Beach again this year and found it still to be a great place to hang out, swim and catch some rays. This time I went to the far end of the beach, almost to Pacific Palisaides and found free parking at the side of the road and a nice wooden stairway from the PCH down... More

Locals will tell you this beach is rarely crowded since it doesn't have all of the bars, etc. that a lot of the other stretches have. This was perfect for our family as it left plenty of room for building sandcastles and running. There are lifeguards and restrooms with showers...but unlike other reviewers our experience was not that they were... More

I used to live just up Temescal from this beach so I really know this beach well. During the summer months, I used to come here at least 3 times a week. I've been coming back to this beach with my 12 year old daughter. We just park on Temescal and walk down to avoid the parking fees. We bring... More

The entrance to the Beach is right off Temescal Canyon. I especially love this beach because of the almost 2 mile walking path before you even get to Chatauqua and the main bike path. If you turn right you have half a mile to the Bel Air Bay club, turn around and you have about a mile and a half... More

Nice beach with beautiful views up the coast to Malibu and down the coast to Palos Verdes. Parking is generally plentiful, although costly ($12 on Summer weekends). Remote areas of the parking areas are good for rollerblading and connects to pave bike paths to Venice Beach and beyond! Beach is relatively narrow and can get crowded, but one kind-of expects...

This beach is somehow right in the middle of everything, but is never uncomfortably crowded. It's $12 to park, but some people find street parking and walk in. The beach is clean and the bathrooms are useable. I went out there to just sunbathe with a friend and we had a great time and couldn't wait to go back.

This was such a family friendly beach! First, the bathrooms were nice for what you'd expect for a public bathroom, even had a bench/sitting area for changing. Bathrooms were easy to access and had the showers right outside which helped for rinsing sand off kids. The beach also had swing sets and mini climbing structures, which the kids loved too.... More

This beach north of Santa Monica comes without the trash and the hubub or Santa Monica Beach and Pier. Yes, it has no pier, but if you are in to just chillin, sunnin, and surfin, with board or body, it is great. Entry per car is $9 and there is plenty of room for everyone. We tried our five beaches...
