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.

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

Clean beach, but can get very crowded on summer weekends. Parking is very challenging here, as it is along most of the South Bay's beaches. This is a good place if you have kids, though, because there's a snack bar here, restrooms, and the main lifeguard station for the area. This is also the southern terminus for the bike path... More

Great beach at the end of the coastal bike path that's low key, much better parking and between two good surfing spots, plus has great surfing of it's own. Snack bar, bathrooms, pretty, clean, not crowded-excellent!

Althought the look and environment is no great deal, its still beautifull the ocean view, the skyline with all the little villas in the back of the beach...That all being said it is still home for me. So I can... More

A great place to walk, body surf, boogie board and find seashells. I have lots of wonderful memories of walks here with my Aunt and Uncle. This is where my Uncle likes to body surf.

I frequently visited this beach early in the morning 7ish and stare the vastness of the ocean. I have enjoyed watching the waves and dolphins swim and play. Good place to ran on short distance of 1 mile.
