Special Comments: Dockweiler Beach is great for the quick family weekend getaway, because it has RV parking with hook-ups. And at night you can have a campfire on the beach! Dockweiler Beach is great for the quick family weekend get away. There is plenty of space for beach activities like football or soccer. There are fire pits on the wide white sand beach. A snack bar that offers bike and skate rentals is available. If you plan on swimming, take note of where the rock jetties and groins are, because on strong surf days the current can pull you into them and cause injury. Restrooms are plentiful. The bike path runs south for miles and miles. The LAX airport is just above Dockweiler Beach so if you look up you'll see the bellies of many planes taking off and flying out over the Pacific Ocean. Facilities include bike path, rentals, restrooms, showers, lifeguards, food stands, fire rings, volleyball courts, plus hang gliding.
For extra fun Windsports Soaring Center holds public hang gilding lessons at Dockweiler Wednesdays thru Sundays, 11AM until sunset. Prices range from $59 for 5 flights, and $99 for 10 flights. The take off point is a 25ft. sand dune on the beach. The instructor stays with you the entire way. Call for more information: 1-800-Hang Glide.
Restrooms: Clean restrooms with showers are located at the north and south ends of the parking lot.
