Only now in my middle age have I realized that this beach and this California South Bay are absolutely stunningly beautiful. Having traveled a great deal now, I can affirm that this Torrance Beach, its lovely wide white smooth sand, and its spectacular curving view of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the bay, are actually more beautiful than the setting...

The restrooms were out of order and replaced by portacabins. Those were dirty but I guess that's normal. Other then that, nice beach.

One perk of this beach is that there is lots of parking. Parking costs vary, depending on the time of the week, so look into that if you want to save some cash. There's a snack bar at the end, before it turns in to Palos Verdes, so that's a nice perk. There's also some seating in front of the... More

Always liked going to the Torrance beach. Plenty of parking, though these days you have to pay for it, and a good family atmosphere.

You can park on the Esplanade but bring money or a card for the meters. There is a parking lot on the South end of the Esplanade but it fills up early. There are bathrooms and lifeguards. The stairs down to the beach and back up are VERY steep so keep that in mind for anyone who can't do a... More

We visited family that lived in Torrance in 1978 and again in 1980 loved Redondo Beach Pier back than. That Pier had to be replaced after being washed to sea. Loved the trip to Beverly Hills,Hollywood, Disneyland,Knottsberry Farm,Wax Museum,Las Vegas. Family made our trip out West fantastic.

Torrance state Beach is a beautiful strand of Beach and fitness path that starts next to Redondo Beach and the pier. For years I'd thought it was still Redondo Beach. The way the beaches line up its not readily easy to tell where one ends and the next begins. For visitors to the area this set of beaches begins to... More

Nice beach - good for beach runs and cycling (dedicated paths for it). Water appeared clean and warm. Volleyball courts available.

Visited here on the 4th of July. There is a lot, but it filled quickly. Look for street parking in the neighborhoods near the beach. Great sandy beach with a nice view of Palos Verdes. Lots of families and kids boogie boarding. Bathrooms were OK, fairly clean for public beach bathrooms, but bring tissues or some TP as it ran... More
