Los Angeles Vacation Travel Information
Dockweiler State Beach in Los Angeles, California
Dockweiler State Beach is the long beach west of the LAX Airport in the Playa Del Rey District of Los Angeles. Even though the land in the park is state-owned, the beach and facilities are operated by LA County. The main entrance to Dockweiler is at the west end of Imperial Highway where it ends at Vista Del Mar. Inside this entrance the road turns right to the main day-use beach which has three large numbered parking lots. This main beach at Dockweiler State Beach offers a wide sandy beach with lifeguards, fire pits, a paved bike path, and nice facilities. This is a great place for swimming and sunbathing while watching planes take off overhead.
To the left (south) inside the main entrance is the Dockweiler RV Park Campground and Beach. Farther south but with a separate entrance off Vista Del Mar is the Bluff Parking Lot and Dockweiler South Beach.
