Owner description: Weight lifters still strut their stuff at this outdoor gym where, in the 30s, 40s and 50s, crowds would gather to watch young men and women honing their bodies, some of whom, like Vic Tanny and Jack LaLanne, went on to fame in the fitness world.

This is a place for people watching, kicking back, grabbing something to eat ( tacos, burgers, fries, ice cream, even Hawaiian poke), and just having fun. Get close to people of all sizes doing their outdoor work-outs adjacent to the sand, or catch a hot basketball game just steps away. You can rent a bike or skates and ride one of the best bike paths around, or just watch the strange and stranger go by.

We found this area to be old and tired. No-one was working out. It seemed to be a forgotten part of town. Lots of hype around the name but no action.

Muscle Beach was not much of a real attraction with only three body builders in attendance. I was disappointed; I thought it would be larger.

We stopped here during a bike ride along the ocean. It was great to watch the young people try their skill on monkey bars, tight ropes, etc.
