About Cabrillo Beach

Cabrillo Beach is a favorite place for friends and families who like to hangout on the beach. The stillwater is protected from the ocean by the San Pedro Breakwater.

Typical facilities like restrooms, showers, firepits, lifeguard service, beach wheelchairs and parking lots are available.  Parking is as low as $1/hour.

The public boat launching ramp is on the harbor side while the other end is the Cabrillo beach pier which is great for fishing.

The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is right next to the beach which is a must-see if you have kids.

Those who like the tv series The Fosters will recognise that it was filmed here.

White Point Beach

There are a few cafes along the S Pacific Ave; or you can always bring your own sandwiches!

Nearby Attractions

While most people visit the beach just for a day of sand, sun, surf and fun, there are actually many interesting attractions all within easy reach of the beach. So if you want to combine some activities in a day in the area, or simply want to allow some members of your group to do different things, then consider some of these nearby attractions.

Point Dume - At the end of the beach, visible as you look all the way to the left while facing the sea, Point Dume is a rocky promontory that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The point, a long bluff, forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay. It is most interesting as a rock climbing location as the rocking mound forms a natural climbing wall with very moderate single pitch rock climbing routes that are perfect for the beginner or training, or simply for those simply wishing to try out natural rock climbing.
