Clean, peaceful, the perfect place to either start or end an enjoyable day by the Ocean. Ideal for families, couples or just wanting to walk the beach on your own.

This beach does not have many parking lots near so it gets less use than the more popular Venice Beaches. If you are in for a long walk then this is a nice beach with a jetty.

dogs on leash are allowed on the board walk except during peak times. dogs are not allowed on the beaches. signage at the entrance to the beach explains this. there are other dog beaches nearby.
