Dockweiler State Beach features a three mile long shoreline with a picnic area and concession stand. The wide beach is beneath the takeoff path from Los Angeles International Airport. Although this is a State Beach, there are no camping sites that are reserved through ReserveAmerica. The park is operated by a local agency.

The bike path from Playa del Rey to Manhattan Beach is still in poor condition, with sand on the bike path. Even though the winds have passed, and the street (bike path) sweeper has taken a pass at the sandy concrete path, much sand remains, making it dangerous for bikers. Take care.
