The South Beach in Dockweiler State Beach is at what is known as the Bluff Parking Lot. The main Dockweiler entrance is where Imperial Highway ends at the ocean, but the entrance to the Bluff Lot is south of there off of Vista Del Mar. This is a large parking lot with a wide sandy beach below it. Volleyball courts and a Youth Center building are at the north end of the parking lot and beyond that is the Dockweiler RV Park Campground Beach. A novice hang-gliding launch area is on the dunes at the south end of the parking lot. Los Angeles County lifeguards are staffed in towers all along Dockweiler State Beach including here at South Beach. Meandering through the beaches and dunes of Dockweiler is a paved bike path that ultimately connects Santa Monica State Beach to Torrance Beach for 22 miles total.
