Description
Treat the entire family to a day of fun in the sun at Will Rogers State Beach, a pristine, two-mile beach park that lies along the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California. Named for the late ... Read more
actor Will Rogers, who owned this strip of land, the beach is now a state park. There's something for everyone! Throw your towel down on the sparkling sand and work on that tan as you watch surfers catch some waves, or get your heart rate up with a pickup volleyball came on the immaculate courts. Take a leisurely ride along the bike path, the southern terminus of the South Bay Bicycle Trail that extends 19 miles up the coast, or grab your snorkel for a little skin diving. Beach bums flock to Will Rogers State Beach throughout the year to enjoy the huge waves, clear waters and mild climate, which is warm in the summer and usually balmy in wintertime.

This Beach is nice because it's cleaner then Santa Monica, not as crowded, but not as far as some of the other nicer beaches.

Good volleyball. Nice people. Easy parking. (not free)

If you want to play, say you know Cary and Allen! You better be good!

This is the perfect beach to go to if you just want to be near the ocean relaxing. There is hardly anyone here starting in Sept. when school resumes so it's pretty peaceful. There are even some volleyball nets if you want to be active. Look for free street parking on the hill east of the entrance, but make sure to read all the signs. Otherwise, parking in the beach lot will cost you $10.

I really like this beach - it's a bit out of the way and thus nowhere near as crowded as Santa Monica or even Redondo, parking is a little steep at $12, try to find parking on the street, just watch out not to park too far up the hill, they do enforce parking rules and write tickets.

White sandy beach little north of Santa Monica Pier. There are volleyball courts, bike paths, and a little snack shack by the bathrooms. The parking situation is a little tenuous as it's expensive. There are some free spots in the residential districts, but those are taken up by the early morning arrivals.

Santa Monica sucks. Malibu is too far.
This... is perfect.

We came here on a BEAUTIFUL Saturday morning and it was not crowded and the sand was great. I didn't go near the water but the wind from the water mixed with the heat from the sun. Perfect day.

It wasn't that crowded - SURPRISE! I was shocked but it was great. People leave you alone and didn't experience any discomfort. :D

Beach was clean.
