Los Angeles without beaches is like tacos without tortillas…it just doesn’t add up. The sand and surf that’s to be found up and down LA’s coastline are a defining feature of the city. I make it a point to avail myself of the dozens of public beaches and piers whenever I can, exploring the shoreline from Malibu to Redondo. These are my go-to spots to catch some sun and jump in the Pacific.
