“Plenty of Parking”

Will Rogers State Beach
Ranked #112 of 609 things to do in Los Angeles
Attraction details
Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

The entrance to the Beach is right off Temescal Canyon. I especially love this beach because of the almost 2 mile walking path before you even get to Chatauqua and the main bike path. If you turn right you have half a mile to the Bel Air Bay club, turn around and you have about a mile and a half to Chatauqua. You could walk all the way to the Pier( that's about 2.5 miles) so it would be 5 miles round trip to get back, I have walked to Venice Beach from here. But you have to share the path with the bicycles at this point. There are plenty of new super clean restrooms!

Nice beach with beautiful views up the coast to Malibu and down the coast to Palos Verdes. Parking is generally plentiful, although costly ($12 on Summer weekends). Remote areas of the parking areas are good for rollerblading and connects to pave bike paths to Venice Beach and beyond! Beach is relatively narrow and can get crowded, but one kind-of expects that! Life guards and restroom facilities are plentiful!

This beach is somehow right in the middle of everything, but is never uncomfortably crowded. It's $12 to park, but some people find street parking and walk in. The beach is clean and the bathrooms are useable. I went out there to just sunbathe with a friend and we had a great time and couldn't wait to go back.

This was such a family friendly beach! First, the bathrooms were nice for what you'd expect for a public bathroom, even had a bench/sitting area for changing. Bathrooms were easy to access and had the showers right outside which helped for rinsing sand off kids. The beach also had swing sets and mini climbing structures, which the kids loved too. Parking for the day was so easy. It was busy but had plenty of available spots. I would go back with the family anytime!

This beach north of Santa Monica comes without the trash and the hubub or Santa Monica Beach and Pier. Yes, it has no pier, but if you are in to just chillin, sunnin, and surfin, with board or body, it is great. Entry per car is $9 and there is plenty of room for everyone. We tried our five beaches in Korea and then stopped in LA for a couple of days and this beach is right up there with Manhattan Beach in our estimation.
