Top Four Beaches To Visit In LA

Whether you’re looking to tan, people watch, or surf, Los Angeles has some of the best beaches in the world.   Grab a bottle of sunscreen and your favorite bathing suit because this week we’re counting down the top 4 best beaches to visit in Los Angeles.

  1. Number four on our list is the gorgeous Abalone Cove Ecological Reserve located in Rancho Palos Verdes. You’ll to need to traverse down a cliffside path from the parking lot and the beaches are often rocky. But if you’re willing to put in a little bit of work, you’ll encounter easily the most scenic spot in the South Bay, with hiking trails that cut through the bluffs, tide pools along the shore and caves to explore.

  1. Dockweiler comes in at number three on our list. One of the only places in Los Angeles that you can have a bonfire makes Dockweiler stand out from other beaches and a great place to spend the day with a group of friends. It’s three miles long and part of it is underneath the LAX take off path, making for some cool plane watching opportunities.  The park also boasts the Dockweiler Hang Gliding Center and the Hang Gliding Flight Training Concession, where beginners can learn the sport of hang gliding.

  1. Number one on our list is Zuma Beach. Zuma is one of largest and most popular beaches in Los Angeles County and considered Malibu’s premier surfing destination.  Zuma is typically what people outside the state picture when they think of LA beaches – mostly because it has been the filming location for many popular films and television shows including: Baywatch, Indecent Proposal, and Planet of the Apes (1968).  For the truly adventurous, Zuma is also home to Point Dume, a gigantic bluff that you can rock-climb to the top of for out of this world views.
