This beach is close to my in laws house, so we always go when we're in town. It's not usually crowded, has beautiful views and close parking. The showers weren't working when we last went and the beach was full of sand fleas and flies. We did witness a lifeguard rescue when two people were caught in a rip tide.... More

Redondo Beach is nice but my preference is Torrance Beach. Very wide and clean beach but no food unless you go to the end of the beach and there's a snack bar that I've never eaten at. There are a few toilets.

I've gone running down this way many times on trips. There are loads of places to eat and chill out. You should take advantage of this location!

We arrived about 730 pm. I cruised around for about twenty minutes looking for a parking spot on the beach. No luck. We ended up parking on over drive. With a five minute walk to beach. We stayed up on the road in between the dolphin park and redondo beach pier. From here we got to see both fireworks. It... More

This is a short little beach in between Redondo Beach pier area and Palos Verdes. Basically it is the end of the coastal bike and walking path, and has a small seasonal food stand below. The views from up by the park at the bluff of the ocean and Palos Verdes are quite nice. Especially when the sunset is happening,... More

This clean white-sand beach starts at the Palos Verdes Peninsula and continues until it joins Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, etc. Excellent beach swimming, wake boarding and specifically designated surfing. Bike path begins here and continues to Venice Beach or the LA River. Closer to Malaga Cove at the Southwest end of the beach is an excellent snorkel or... More

Every beach in the South Bay is really great but this one (we affectionately call RAT Beach because it is where Redondo And Torrance meet), is truly special because of: 1) You see dolphins jumping around every early morning around 6:30/7 2) Unlike the other South Bay beaches, you are virtually guaranteed a parking spot on any day, any time....
