Three Great Beaches near Van Nuys

One of the best reasons to visit to Southern California in January is the beaches, and these three are only about 30 minutes away.

Santa Monica State Beach

Located just south of the Santa Monica Pier is this exceptionally clean beach. Around the clock lifeguard headquarters makes it an excellent choice for families. A bike path and surfing lessons are available, and there are nearby shops offering bike, surfboard, and skate rentals too.

Will Rogers State Beach

Running two miles along the Pacific Palisades, this inviting beach offers free parking along the Pacific Coast Highway. Explore the 22-mile-long Marvin Braude Bike Trail, or enjoy some fishing, swimming, diving, or surfing. 

Topanga State Beach

With its rough coastline and challenging waves, this is not the place for swimming or learning to surf. However, even if you’re a novice wave-rider, you can still have fun watching skilled surfers navigate the breaks while you enjoy a quiet walk or relax on the sand.
