“Great sunsets, surfing and swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

we stopped by to see the sunset as it is one of the few beaches where the sun sets over the ocean this time of year. the wind surfers were out in force and the sun set was awesome. A small beach, but free parking on the roadside. A little less crowded than other beaches as we found parking easily. Go for the sunsets as it is a great view reflecting off the water.

“A quiet beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We visited late on a sunny Saturday and the beach had surfers and families, but still was peaceful. The shores are a bit rocky, so beware when wading. The beach offers great views of the Los Angeles area. We saw pelicans diving for their food which was rather entertaining. Parking was free on the side of the road, but there is also parking on site for a small fee. Topango State Beach is a short and lovely drive from Los Angeles, and was devoid of the freak shows found on some of the other beaches.

“Locals suck”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

If you're tempted by peeling point break waves beware of the local stink eye and negative energy.
