About Torrance Beach in Torrance, California
Torrance Beach is a long, wide sandy beach (and the only beach) in the city of Torrance, California. This is the southernmost of the big beaches on Santa Monica Bay which extends from the Malibu Area to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Sunbathing, surfing, beach walking, and biking on the Marvin Braude Bike Trail are good reasons to visit this beach.
Torrance County Beach has a large parking lot, safe graded ramps to the beach, lifeguards, access to a long bike path, and decent facilities. It tends to be a little less crowded than its neighboring beaches to the north, Redondo, Hermosa, and Manhattan Beach.
Torrance Beach starts at Miramar Park on the north end and extends to a cove at the south end called Malaga Cove Beach (aka RAT Beach). The parking lot for Torrance Beach is along Paseo De La Playa from Calle Miramar to Via Riviera. South of that there are homes on the bluff and zero public right of ways to the beach.
