“Cold water, less people”
Review of Cabrillo Beach

Cabrillo Beach
Ranked #193 of 629 things to do in Los Angeles
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 July 2016

Not exactly what I'd call a swimmer beach, or a shell collector, or a sun bathing...but it is less crowded than most and it's convenient if you dont want to travel far. Nice place to watch the shipping and enjoy a picnic. Pack it with you, not much nearby.

I went with a few friends had no idea there was a parking meter, a little hidden. Beach is a little dirty not many people kind of quiet. Would recommend on taking food as there aren't many options or places to get something! Kind of cold, not many sea shells!

This is one of the beaches I went to as a child. Didn't find any sea shells or starfish. We went just to edge of water and it was cold. There were a few surfers and Buggie boards having fun with the high surf. The beach is small in the west side with nice waves. The other side is very nice and had lots of youth groups having fun. There was still plenty of beach. If in area stop by and make day of it. The marine aquarium just feet from beach

Beach parking meter is a joke and it closes at 12 midnight so if you are here for grunions don't bother you are wasting your time. Go to another beach.

First visit to this beach! It's small but there enough room between parking and the water to set up shop. I would recommend it to any families with young children only because the waves are minimal and won't slam your young ones down and beat them. Very CLEAN! On set restrooms and parking is literally feet away.
