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!

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.

Has a large flat rate ($7) parking lot with a short walk to the sand. Recently went on a summer Saturday and the lot was wide open at noon, but filled up around 2pm. Not nearly as crowded as Santa Monica or Venice. Bathroom and outdoor showers available. I think there is also a food vendor, but most people either picnic or hike a couple blocks to Riviera Village. Keep an eye out for dolphins.

Torrance State Beach is great for families! The location is a little less busy and there is ample parking that is a flat fee for the day, no hiking back to your car to feed a meter. There are concrete ramps and walkways to reach the beach and yet the beach is still very deep. The water is cold, as is always the water in the Pacific, but not so cold we could not enjoy it in August. No seashells to speak of, but no sealife around your feet either for those squeamish about that. LOTS of seaweed but they float in large clumps so they are easy to avoid. Plenty of lifeguard stands, bathrooms and a small refreshment stand. No hassling by beach vendors either. A great beach to visit with family,

Love this clean and easy to walk beach a bit out of L.A. We went on a weekend so the crowds were the highest, but the beach did not feel crowded at all! My only complaint is that soem of the parking meters along the Esplanade take only quarters, so plan ahead and bring a roll.
