Public parking and easy access are available at Los Angeles County and California State beaches. Favorite beaches for locals include Topanga State Beach, Malibu Lagoon State Beach, and Leo Carrillo State Beach.
For information on public access and coastal development, contact the California Coastal Commission. All beaches are public domain up to the high water mark…basically, the wet sand is considered public property. Take care not to trespass on or under people’s homes when walking the shoreline.
