Torrance County Beach

Nestled between Redondo Beach and Malaga Cove, you may hear the locals refer to this stretch as RAT Beach - as in, Right After Torrance or Redondo & Torrance. 

The soft white sands here sit at the bottom of a picturesque cliff, so snapping some Insta-worthy photos is a breeze.

When it comes to amenities, you’ll find loads of parking spaces close by, lifeguards on daily duty, and restrooms and showers right by the beach too.

Popular activities here include surfing, fishing and scuba diving, and there are volleyball nets too if you prefer to work up a sweat on dry land.

Running along the length of the beach is Miramar Park - an enormous stretch of greenery and walking trails, with plenty of places to stop and admire the sea views. It’s also very popular with cyclists too, and you’ll spot a fair few dog walkers as well.

On the facilities front there’s very little by way of snacks and drinks, so it’s best to bring your own if you’re planning to stay for the day. On the plus side, the shortage of food and drink outlets helps to keep the masses away, so this place is perfect if you enjoy a bit of space. 

And despite its relative tranquility compared to some of the livelier stretches along the coast, it’s far from cut off. You can stroll to the tonnes of bars and restaurants in nearby Redondo Beach in just 10 minutes.
