This is one of my favorite beaches, even tho there is oil if you dig your toes into the sand (has been forever, not just recent spill). I love the quietness of this beach, how the houses are across the street rather than right AT the beach, the paved walk is great, plenty of bathrooms along the way, a lot... More

Clean beach. Local surfers spot. Bring food restaurants are a ways away. Plenty of parking. Its a little hike down to the beach and then back up to parking. Usually not crowded. Decent surf most of the time

This is a busy beach even in the winter. It has a snack bar which nice and plenty of parking. The sand is kept clean. The drawback would be the metered parking is expensive.

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.
