It was one of the beautiful beaches must admit for the reasons that it was less crowded quite clean and no food stalls around the region ...... they have joggers/cycle path on the beach which enjoyed with a bicycle ride ...... though if they took care of the negatives it would be certainly one of the best beach in LA...

It's not the most beautiful beach in the world... But having grown up here one just loves to walk along the beach here..

Yes, you are not on a Caribbean beach, but the views here are awesome. It's not a sugar sand type of beach but for California it is a nice place with plenty of action. We weren't bothered by the homeless at all when we were here. Cool place to relax!

Not a very clean beach. Lots of trash washed ashore. The bathroom and changing rooms were gross. No vendors or food trucks for snacks just a ice cream truck.

I enjoyed walking along the beach much better from a distance (sidewalk) rather than up close. It's very littered and looks nice from farther away. There's plenty of parkland to use for enjoyment along the Long Beach waterfront workout worrying about stepping on needles in the sand.

We have been to beaches all over the world and can honestly say that this one was without a doubt the most disgusting excuse for a beach we've seen. There was rubbish everywhere being washed up on the shore. The sand had this muddy appearance and looked like murky swamp water. Many of the people were trashy, too. There were... More

I spent my last day in USA at Long Beach and I was rather disappointed. The walk from the marina to the beach was nice, but the beach itself was very dirty. There were lots of trash bins around, but unfortunately it looks like none of the trash made it into the bins. The water is flat, so good for... More

Walk, run, bike or roller blade on wonderful trails. Restrooms and water available all along the way. Great to sit and relax and watch harbor activity. People watching is entertaining as well. Lifeguards on duty - safe and family friendly beach. Gentle waves great for small children.
