Playa Del Rey Beach

Playa Del Rey Beach is the wide sandy beach in front of the Playa Del Rey neighborhood of Los Angeles. The beach is northwest of LAX Airport on state land at the north end of Dockweiler State Beach and south of the Marina Del Rey Harbor entrance. This beach like the rest of Dockweiler State Beach is operated by Los Angeles County not the state. Playa Del Rey Beach offers volleyball courts, a long paved bike path, and a grass park across the street that has a kids playground and basketball courts. Locals call the north end of Playa Del Rey Beach “Toes Beach” for hanging ten (toes) on a surfboard.

There was a time was when Playa del Rey lived up to its name: King’s Beach. The hamlet’s Toes Beach had a majestic break that lured the likes of singing surfer Dennis Wilson of Beach Boys fame. Wave riders could grab a burger at one of many hangouts, while more sophisticated diners — airline pilots, aerospace engineers, professors — had their pick of white-tablecloth restaurants.

​It was a destination surfing town with a casual vibe but plenty of bustle. The casual vibe remains, but Playa del Rey is no longer much of a destination. An off-shore breakwater, installed in 1965 in part to calm the wave action afflicting the nascent Marina del Rey development, wiped out the enclave’s big surf — and with it, much of its coastal cachet. Surf spots die but the memories live on forever. Please help us preserve these memories. If you have any old PDR area photos, or surf stories to share with us, please e-mail us them and your name for credits if we use them.

The best public parking is near Del Rey Lagoon Park on Pacific Avenue where a parking lot and street spots are available. Another public lot is located at the north end of Pacific Avenue.
