I've ridden this bike path hundreds of times and it never gets old. Try to catch it during sunrise for an extra special ride. The afternoons can get busy through.

Great walk. Very clean and the walk/bike paths are separated. Parking is free until 8am, but only $1 an hour past that. I left at 7:30 am and parking lot was about 3/4 full by that time. 1/4 mile markers are in the walk path, very helpful. People were very friendly.

Love this trail. Great views and separate paths for bikers and walkers/runners. Several rest rooms along the way if needed.

It's great mostly because it's close to home. But it does get crowded. Even though there's acres of empty sand, people love to conglomerate on the running and biking trails. Good three mile trail marked at every 0.25 mile and extends into the downtown/shoreline village area to the west and Belmont shore to the east.

Truly accessible with multiple entry/exits, Including switchbacks (from Ocean Blvd), from beach-level parking and from stairs. So, customizable, cool (but sunscreen necessary) and beautiful.

Nicely paved walking/jogging path. I run it almost every morning. It gets busy on the weekend, but everything gets busy on the weekend. To extend the path go down the peninsula to Bay Shore Walk and Ocean Front Walk.

I've walked part of this before but found it much, much more fun on a bike. If you go early in the morning around 7am you can find parking for free in one of the lots close to the Belmont shores side. Make sure you're back by 9am because the ticket police are just waiting to start ticketing and they are pretty aggressive. You can ride right along the ocean, which is really great, to Seaport Village then hang a sharp left along the the embankment where people fish and it takes you around to the coast guard station. I usually take a breather there then ride back. It's so lovely and I've never found it too crowded. You might want to check if there's anything special happening before you go because almost every month there's something exciting going on such as the marathon, Long Beach Grand Prix, sandcastle building, or the annual jazz festival. Catch a cup of coffee on 2nd street afterwards and it's the perfect morning.

Fun walk to just enjoy the beach. The water is a bit dirtier than most of the beaches in So Cal but it's still an enjoyable place walk, bike, or swim.

I roller skate on this trail nearly daily. I love it! The trails have just recently been done so walkers and joggers have their own gravel path, those on wheels have their own concrete path. No more running over the people walking.

A nice level walk along the bay! It's really awesome cause there is a bike path and a path for waking so you don't have to dodge bikes the whole walk. The is a pay parking lot right at the start but if you look you can find free street parking. This is great walk for the family and you don't have to step in sand at any point of you don't want too!

I go to school in the area so am always looking for s good walk to get away from the hustle and bustle that is long beach. This offers a great opportunity. Beautiful water and the peninsula atmosphere is a great one. Time and time again come back.

Pretty bike/walking path along the beach

The path is longer than 3 miles, depending on where you start. I've taken the path beginning at the peninsula area, all the way to downtown by the boat docks. It's a great view of the ocean and Queen Mary. Plenty of options of parking, including street, meter, and paid lots. A section of the beach is dog friendly.

One star marked off because there has been LOTS of construction going on. Some areas are fenced off and they are renovating the public restrooms. The sand area seems pretty clean, but the water is meh (brown). Also, a lot of people don't clean up after their pets.
