“bike, skate or run just don't touch the water”
Reviewed April 22, 2009

The bike path is awesome but the sand it littered with garbage due to the breakwater installed after WWII. Did you know that before WWII, Long Beach was known as the “Waikiki of Southern California”? We had waves!! There was even a surfing contest here in 1939. Now the waves are gone and the trash stays:( .... SINK THE BREAKWATER!!! BRING BACK OUR BEACH!!

“Nice environment”
Reviewed December 10, 2008

Long Beach is a great beach to walk, ride a bike or even roller-blade. The people are friendly and warm. The water is calm and a pretty sight, just don't go in it. If you're looking for a place to surf or to play in... Huntington Beach is just south of LB (after you pass Seal and Sunset Beach). Shoreline Village is a nice place to walk and so is Belmont Shore. Belmont Shore is a street that you can walk that has a lot of restaurants, stores and is dog friendly (just make sure your dog is either leashed or can fit in your purse) Back to the beach part... it's a great place to run/jog as well. My favorite places to walk is the beach off of Redondo heading North then ending at the Long Beach Museum of Art.

“Dirty”
Reviewed May 27, 2005

Was delighted to be staying within walking distance of the beach. However, the tideline was full of litter - paper, food etc. Not at all a pleasant experience.
