Playa Del Rey Beach
A local expert says
Biking on the strand really embodies Southern California. I can’t think of anything better than biking next to the sand and waves. I like starting at Playa del Rey Beach and riding south because the parking is easy, and this stretch of the path is much less crowded than in Venice and Santa Monica. It’s super serene.
If you ride south 9 miles, you run right into the Redondo Beach Pier, which is a good stopping point. My favorite seafood shack there is Quality Seafood. They’ll shuck oysters and steam crab legs for you right on the spot. It’s a great place to hang out before heading back.
