We all love a good day at the beach, but what we really love is a beach with no crowds. Well you’re in luck my friends – one of Torrance’s best kept secrets is our beach. Private, quiet and did we mention beautiful. National Beach Day is August 30 and we can’t think of a better place to “seas” the day – here’s why:
Torrance Beach is one of our biggest hidden gems. Visitors can enjoy the Southern California sunshine without everybody and their brother (Seriously!). The uncrowded beach also has more than 300 parking spots with tons of shops and restaurants close by. There are also restrooms, outdoor showers, beach wheelchairs, a life guard station and much more.
You can swim, fish, scuba dive or surf at Torrance Beach. There is also plenty to do onshore like laying out in the sun (duh), playing volleyball, throwing a football and building a sand castle.
The Strand Bike Trail
Torrance Beach is the starting point of The Strand, a 22-mile bike path that runs all the way up to Will Rogers State Beach. If you don’t have your own set of wheels, you can always rent a bike along The Strand. There are also several spots along the path where you can stop to enjoy a snack or take a break.
Kick-back, relax and enjoy the scenery at Torrance Beach. From sunrise to sunset, the views are pretty incredible here. The beautiful 40-acre coastline also offers views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, which ain’t too shabby.
Are you in? Come celebrate National Beach Day at Torrance Beach (and after that of course). We will “sea” you there.
