This is a beautiful run as there is lots of people watching, beautiful... More

This beach is wide, long, clean and has all the amenities an earnest sun seeker could want. Numerous sand volleyball courts and nets exist, and a long seaside bike/walking path to enjoy.

When you are in Southern Cali make certain to stop at Will Rogers State Beach. You can park at the Santa Monica Pier and walk north. its a great walk, or jog, or bike ride that will take you fairly close to Sunset Blvd. Some of the worlds best Volley Ball players started their careers

Started our bike ride here and rode to Marina del Rey! So beautiful and such a fun day! Next bike ride we started in Torrance and rode all the way down to Will Rogers State Beach! Well worth it! Rode through Venice Beach and got a fruit smoothie and enjoyed the strange sights!

This was the perfect beach to stop and have a picnic after a couple of hours of biking on the pathways. It was very quiet, few people, nice sand, bathroom facilities and clean. The scenery was great.

We wanted a good safe place to park and a nice beach to enjoy and this place fit the bill. It also has bathrooms and a place to buy snacks and cold drinks, so that's a plus. Parking was $18.00 so be prepared for that. I only wish they had umbrellas for rent but bring your own or a nice... More

Definitively recommended, not as crowded as Santa Monica, or the major Malibu state beaches. Nice easy access parking lot. Facilities available with bathrooms, and showers (as of this last Labor day weekend they were working!). Parking felt a little pricey at $15 but it was worth it. We spent a wonderful day at this hidden gem.

This beach is huge. You need to buy a day parking pass for $9 even if you only want to stay a couple of hours. It is not so crowded although you need to walk quite a bit until you reach the shoreline. There is a small restaurant at the parking lot too - good food but a bit pricey.... More
