But if you turn to temescal canyon road you can find a free parking both sides of the road. Also you can... More

Easy access to the beach from the city, this beach offers quiet shoreline strolling or busier areas with restaurants and attractions. Will Rogers State Beach is perfect for romantic walks, enjoying the sand and surf, relaxing and, of course, shooting sunset photos. So easy to find this long beach where historic highway U.S. Route 66 (aka Santa Monica Boulevard in... More

There are so many great beaches in CA. We went to this one because the others were so packed we couldn't find parking. This one was busy as well, but there was parking. We paid 9.00 to park. There are bathrooms here and showers. It is a clean beach and a nice place to take a family.

I was pleasantly surprised how private this beach was in comparison to the surrounding area. Known as the "Bay Watch Beach". It did not disappoint. just north of the famous Santa Monica Pier, but yet a.... undisturbed beach. If you are looking for less people and noise this would be a great choice. It is walkable from Santa Monica Pier,... More

I ran from Pacific Palisades to Santa Monica Pier and back this morning and I loved it! A paved and well maintained trail runs parallel to the beach with several restrooms and beach cafes along the route. I had a bit of a foggy morning weather-wise, but the temperature was just about perfect. You probably don't want to plan on... More

Will Rogers Beach might as well be named Pacific Palisades Beach because it's just below the hillsides. Nice beach, favorite of locals, not too many tourists. Bath rooms. Pay parking. Can Can walk underneath PCH / Hwy. 1 to restaurants, none on beach. This is the beach for enjoying the sand & surf. Neat spot. ...

It's easy to get burned out trying to see all the sights while on vacation. I wanted to build some beach time into this trip as a way to get enforced rest. This beach was recommended because it's more for locals and lesser-known than Santa Monica and Venice beaches. This beach doesn't have the attractions of those others, but it... More
