Last week I was invited out to to explore Torrance with Discover Torrance, a beach community not far from Los Angeles. Torrance Beach is a long wide sandy beach in the southernmost of the big beaches on Santa Monica Bay which extends from the Malibu area to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It has a local nickname of RAT Beach which stands for various things like Right At Torrance, Right After Torrance, Redondo And Torrence, etc. Torrance Beach offers plenty of parking, safe graded ramps to the beach, lifeguards, access to a long bike path, and nice facilities. Perry's offers 'feet in the sand' dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Torrance Beach tends to be a little less crowded than it’s neighboring beaches to the north, Redondo, Hermosa, and Manhattan Beach. Torrance Beach starts at Miramar Park on the north end and extends to a cove at the south end called Malaga Cove Beach. The parking lot is along Paseo De La Playa from Calle Miramar to Via Riviera. Perry's also rents bicycles which we took for a casual ride along the sand.
