Will Rogers State Beach is a relatively quiet beach compared to others in Los Angeles and a great place to relax and enjoy some tranquil fun in the sun. It's settled in between Santa Monica and Malibu, and that's where most of the area traffic goes, though you'll still run into some beach crowds when visiting during the summer.

    All sorts of people can enjoy this beach, but it's mainly frequented by those looking to relax. Most of the beach's shoreline is inviting for swimmers, but you'll find adequate spots for surfing as well.
