Picnic at Manhattan Beach( Jay L. Clendenin, Los Angeles Times / May 24, 2012 )
Some of our beaches fulfill a lot of stereotypes: pale sand and great bods, volleyball and families, picnicking and regularly emptied trashed bins. Naturally, those beaches are popular in the summer and hard to get near during the day. So our advice is: Don't bother going to Manhattan Beach….until about 5:30 or 6 p.m. Then carry your towels, your dinner and your sweat shirts and spend a couple of hours enjoying the best part of the day.
Cost: The sand is free; pier parking lots are $1.50 per hour
