The Back Story
Stretching from Malibu to San Pedro, Los Angeles County has 72 miles of beaches. From surfing in Malibu to the amusement park on Santa Monica Pier, beach volleyball in Manhattan Beach to wind surfing in San Pedro—the beaches of Southern California offer the adventures of a lifetime.
Home to the American surf scene, southern California's beaches boast buff bodies, soft sand, and totally awesome waves. It doesn't cool off after dark. The night scene sizzles and celebrity spotting is a popular past time.
