Torrance Beach is super nice, especially in the summer when its warm. Its family friendly, life guards are on duty, and the water is pretty kid friendly as well. This beach is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. There is plenty of parking in the lot as well as side streets. Definitely a nice place to spend the day at the beach!

My wife and I visited Torrance Beach 3 times on our visit to the area. The beach is at the end of Redondo Beach, but we found this end of the beach to be the best. We were fortunate enough to see wild dolphins close to the beach as well as lots of sea birds. There are plenty of rest rooms and a great sandy beach. The area also feels extremely safe especially at night.

I had part of a Saturday free while doing other things in Los Angeles and wanted to get a quick and easy "beach fix." Torrance beach was perfect for this. Parking was close, plentiful and inexpensive ($7 for the whole day). Even on a beautiful Saturday (11:00-2:00) the beach was not crowded and mostly populated by families. It is an amazingly clean beach, with very little seaweed (also very few shells). Within a ten minute walk is Riviera Village with lots of options for lunch or a quick snack. It was a great way for me to get some strolling beach time in with little fuss.

As I walk the strand and the beach, the cool waters feel very refreshing. The picturesque view of Palos Verdes is beautiful! This area is like no other.

Due to it's geographical location on the coast, relative to currents, there is a lot os seaweed that gets tangleled around your legs. Little kids get easily dragged under. According to locals this is a constant problem.

A local kinda beach. Never packed. Not groomed really. A bit of a walk from where u park with steep up and down. But it’s my Beach and I dig it. A good spot to launch a kayak outside of the harbor. Good ol RAT Beach - Right after Torrance.

This clean white-sand beach starts at the Palos Verdes Peninsula and continues until it joins Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, etc. Excellent beach swimming, wake boarding and specifically designated surfing. Bike path begins here and continues to Venice Beach or the LA River. Closer to Malaga Cove at the Southwest end of the beach is an excellent snorkel or scuba spot where you can see Garibaldi, octopus, schools of baby yellowtail, and maybe even dolphin. Amazing sunsets!
