Watch the Sunset at Ratner Beach

Added by Tori Marsh

This is a tiny little stretch of beach, right off of PCH, but boasts unobstructed views of the the sunset!

Unlike most beaches in Los Angeles, this tiny little stretch of beach is usually empty, and is a little gem! It is the perfect place to get an unobstructed view of the sunset, and the sticks in the ground make for a picturesque sunset picture! Just be warned, this beach is right on PCH, so expect car noises! If you are looking for tranquility, this might not be the place. 

Parking is pretty easy, and free! Most of the time, there is parking right on the side of PCH, right next to the beach! If for some reason there is no parking, there is a fair amount at the intersection of PCH and Coastline Dr. There are meters, so be sure to have quarters!

The beach is great for families, fishermen, and even dogs!

Beautiful

Made a quick stop here to relax and have a quick picnic lunch. Would be a wonderful spot for sunset. We did hear the cars, but the beach wasn't busy, which was nice.
