This beautiful, soft sand beach has 40 acres of beach and is at the foot of cliffs which extend to the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

There are over 300 parking spaces and amenities include restrooms, a concession stand, showers, bike path, beach wheelchairs, and volleyball nets. Torrance Beach is great for swimming, fishing, scuba and skin diving, and surfing.

Torrance Beach is a long wide sandy beach (and the only beach) in the city of Torrance, California. This is the southernmost of the big beaches on Santa Monica Bay which extends from the Malibu area to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It has a local nickname of RAT Beach which stands for various things like Right At Torrance, Right After Torrance, Redondo And Torrence, etc. Torrance Beach has a nice large parking lot, safe graded ramps to the beach, lifeguards, access to a long bike path, and nice facilities. It tends to be a little less crowded than it’s neighboring beaches to the north, RedondoHermosa, and Manhattan Beach. Torrance Beach starts at Miramar Park on the north end and extends to a cove at the south end called Malaga Cove Beach. The parking lot is along Paseo De La Playa from Calle Miramar to Via Riviera. South of that are homes on the bluff and no public right of ways to the beach.
