The park is large enough for picnics, BBQs and games with the family and friends. There are paths for biking and roller skating. The parking is plentiful. It's also... More

This is a very beautiful park with ample amenities. The beach is huge and the views are awesome. Parking fees are reasonable at $1/hr or $5/day.

We came here to find a spot to have lunch in our RV, quite beach and nicely busy park. Locals were playing sport and setting up tents for barbeques etc. Great facilities.

I visited here on a Saturday morning/afternoon. It was super quiet and peaceful. The beach was clean and had plenty of trash cans and benches.

My family loves going to this park. My kids call it the Pirate Park because of its playground theme. I particularly enjoy the playground area due to there being NO sand.

On our last day of vacation we found this beach. I wish we would have skipped Santa Monica beach and just spent the day here. Quiet and clean for our family to unwind and take in the ocean views. We walked up and down the beach dodging the waves. Best way to wrap up a vacation on a high note.

The Beach offers excellent views of the Channel Islands! You might even see a migrating whale or a dolphin pod! Clean beaches well patrolled unfortunately no free parking!

This is a good beach and it's one of my favorites. It's long and perfect for walks along the coast. Some areas are more popular and others have fewer people, but it's a nice beach overall.

Easy access from Harbor Blvd. Close to beach park with handicap access. Not crowded. No lifeguards. West facing with great views of the Santa Barbara Channel and the Channel Islands but quite windy much of year. Spectacular sunsets.
