Southern California Beaches

To view a list of the Southern California Beaches, click on these links to "Jump-To" or just scroll down.  Beach counties include: San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles and Ventura.

Navigating this page: If you click on a Beach City you'll be taken to a page that will give you a list of all the beaches in that city. If you click on an individual beach (left hand column) you'll be taken to the Beach City page where that particular beach is located. So, multiple beaches listed will end up on the same page. Phew! Confusing? Yeah, you might want to read that again!

Southern California Beaches are sandy, tropical and especially warm June through September. These are the warmest beaches with the warmest ocean temperatures along the coast. You’ll find medium to pale tan colored sand, some cliffs, some coves and lots of waves!

Perfect for surfing, sunbathing, people watching and swimming. Year round, the beach scene is a mix of ages, backgrounds and sizes. But in the summertime you’ll mostly find families, teens and students with time on their hands to socialize and enjoy the Southern California lifestyle. Lots of people who live inland will go to the beaches to hang out for the day and escape the summer heat.

Out of all the Southern California Beaches, I visit Ventura County the most. Not only are they the closest to me but I've just got to know the area so well and have fallen in love with Rincon Parkway.


Thank you for visiting Trippin' Thru California! Hope you enjoy discovering new "things to do" and "fun places" as much as I do!
