Our hotel has this beach listed as a “place to see”. They might want to rethink that for tourists. It is very much a locals hangout. It’s probably not the best image that the tourist industry wants to put out. We quickly took pictures and...More

Very much a locals hang out park or picnic gathering. The water is not great, I did not swim in it. The beach was ok to catch a few rays. Good play area for the kids.

We stayed in San Pedro for an event and were under the impression that it was a pretty industrial area (which usually means ugly and dirty). We decided to have a post-breakfast walk to the sea front before leaving 'just because', and I'm so glad...More

Hi, Wouldn't recommend this beach at all for sunbathing or swimming as both the sand and water are not clean. Additionally as a warning to people with little kids who might play in the shallow water, I was there a few weeks ago and was...More

Seemingly a local hangout, we wandered upon it and loved it! Parking is the best we found, $1 per hour. Not too crowded. But oh my, was it cold!

Not exactly what I'd call a swimmer beach, or a shell collector, or a sun bathing...but it is less crowded than most and it's convenient if you dont want to travel far. Nice place to watch the shipping and enjoy a picnic. Pack it with...More

This is one of the beaches I went to as a child. Didn't find any sea shells or starfish. We went just to edge of water and it was cold. There were a few surfers and Buggie boards having fun with the high surf. The...More

Beach parking meter is a joke and it closes at 12 midnight so if you are here for grunions don't bother you are wasting your time. Go to another beach.

I saw fire pits on the beach. Closes at dusk. You don't want to be in that area after dark unless your there to meet drug dealer.
