I've been to this beach twice for our family's annual surf weekend. There are close to 30 of us at our get together and this place is fantastic! The areas are clearly marked for surfers or swimmers so you stay out of each other's way. There is plenty of room for picnicking, sandcastle building, or strolling on the sand. A... More

This beach is really nice. The water is warm, and the sand is really nice. The waves are huge as well!

Great place to swim, area for kids nearby, lifeguards excellent! Parking available for a fee. Sit up on the Esplanade and watch for dolphins. Ride your bike on the bike path up to Venice???? Or to Redondo for a quick trip. Soak up the rays on a blanket. Watch sunrise or sunset and be in awe.

Not as crowded as Redondo but easily accessible by walking or by bike. Volleyball, kids surf camps and school trips all take advantage of the location. Love it!

One of my favorite places to take a walk by the ocean is Torrance State Beach. There are two walking paths, an upper one that is next to the street/parking with breath taking views, and the lower one that parallels the upper one. If you are riding your bike or rollerblading or skate boarding, the lower one is more conducive... More

Got to the beach around 1:00. We had no trouble finding a perfect place to park the RV. We took the surfboard, boogie boards and sand toys to entertain all the ages of adults and kids. It truly was a perfect day. Clean, well life guarded and everybody was polite as we all shared the beautiful beach space. Can't wait... More

We were looking for a nice beach to round out a 5 day business trip on the last day of our stay in Redondo Beach. Torrance Beach is located just south of Redondo Beach. It was a nice deep beach with bathroom facilities and very family oriented. It had great views of the cliffs of Palos Verdes and there were... More
