Playing, walking or just sitting and enjoying the view. Torrance Beach is connected to Redondo Beach which leaves you a lot of room to enjoy.

Better parking than most other beaches....you will find a pretty wide cross-section of folks. The view of the PV peninsula makes you think of the Italian Amalfi coast.

Parking meter parking, you can park directly by the street level walking path, stairs and ramp access down to the beach, nice restrooms along the biking/walking path with excellent toilet paper, not tissue paper, and plenty of spots to sit in the beach.

I love to park along the Avenues when I go to the beach. You can usually find a spot that you can park for free. And the beaches there have a restroom if you need it. Lots of volleyball courts if you like to play....More
