Playa Del Rey Beach
10 locals recommend
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.

This is where I go to get out on the sand and in the water. Less crowded than other nearby beaches and usually a lot cleaner. Restrooms on site, lifeguards on duty. Bring a towel and a picnic! It's usually not too hard to find free parking on a nearby street.

It is great for kite flying, a brisk walk, bike riding and collecting shells.
