There is a pedestrian/bike path parallel to the beach. If you walk a bit down from the corner of Stearns wharf and State Street, you will find a nice sandy stretch of beach, a bit away from the wharf itself. Although the beach is not sheltered from the water ocean, the waves are relatively gentle. And there are some pleasant surrounding views. In the immediate area, there is 75 minute free parking.

East beach is situated on Cabrillo Blvd as you enter the beach area from Los Angeles. Take the Cabrillo exit and turn left. The beach also has areas for sand-play and a tasty outside cafe. The ocean is cold but invigorating.

East beach is very popular among locals and offers a nice, clean sandy beach with a water fountain and picnic tables. Parking is next to it. A great place to spend and afternoon and catch a few waves body surfing.

This beach was across from our hotel, and is very nice, and long. It was never crowded while we were there.
