lunch on the pier we walked along the sidewalk behind the beach. Given that it was a decidedly cool afternoon no great surprise that there were few people about and hardly any on the beach itself. We know it is a great place in the summer.

Surfers like this beach. Several fisherman were also present. We were here in the winter so we did not see any one in the water. Parking was not bad, but probably harder in the summer. Nice for families to play in the sand.

This is a good beach to go to for families. The waves are generally not too large during the afternoon hours, but sometimes there are surfers in the water. The beach lifeguards keep the surfers in one area and the swimmers in another so that no one gets hurt. Parking is available nearby in the beach parking lot for a... More

Beautiful beach with a wide array of things to do year round. Great surfing or surf fishing if you prefer. Close to the Riviera and all kinds of eateries.

As I travelled along the coast of California I saw the coastline change from steep cliffs to wide white sand beaches. I was expecting this beach to be much longer and wider than it was. I was also disappointed by the litter and debris I saw along the beach and at the high tide line.

Check it out on your next exclusion --- usually pretty quiet and open stretches...great view of the peninsula and lots of fun things to do back at the Redondo Beach pier...make a day of it...inexpensive Sunday full of sun and romantic potential

This is the best beach in Los Angeles county for taking nice long evening walks. The scenery is beautiful and It is never crowded with tourists. It is an easy safe well lit walk/jog from Redondo State Beach.

The Torrance State Beach is right next to Redondo Beach. You can get a better view of the Palos Verdes bluff from here. Great view of whale and dolphin watching. Beautiful sunset view and on a clear day you can see Catalina Island and all the way up to Malibu. If you like biking, you can bike far along the... More

See this beach just about every day I go to the office. There is some fine surfing towards the hills of Palos Verdes (south) and lots of good restaurants in the area for any type meal you wish. The fishing from shore is also good if you move south towards the hills.
