I had part of a Saturday free while doing other things in Los Angeles and wanted to get a quick and easy "beach fix." Torrance beach was perfect for this. Parking was close, plentiful and inexpensive ($7 for the whole day). Even on a beautiful Saturday (11:00-2:00) the beach was not crowded and mostly populated by families. It is an amazingly clean beach, with very little seaweed (also very few shells). Within a ten minute walk is Riviera Village with lots of options for lunch or a quick snack. It was a great way for me to get some strolling beach time in with little fuss.
Best of the best, so beautiful, seems hidden away, this is a wonderful place to bring your friends..
this is my favorite, and I live here ! the parking is free, ( if you can find it ) you park on the sand and your there ... it is not as busy as the rest, BUT its the best.
Great beach to bring the kids, especially if you go early. Late afternoon it is packed. Good sized waves for body surfing and lots of sand crabs to catch.
Beautiful, clean, nice sand, big beach with free street parking on beach level if you get there early... We got a spot before 9am on a Fri and Sat. Family friendly with reasonably clean and large res...
Very pretty beach in Malibu that was quiet and family friendly. Great for long walks. Our only complaint was that we all ended up with a tar-like substance on our feet and shoes.
