About Colorado Lagoon

Behind the Marine Stadium park, the tidal lagoon receives sea water from Marine Stadium. It features a sandy beach, floating causeways and a marine science center. During weekdays, it is quiet and peaceful just to sit on the broadwalk and enjoy the view.

The clean and calm water from lagoon together with children's playground and lifeguard service make it a very children friendly beach in Long Beach. It's great for nature watching; jellyfish and loads of fish can be seen from the broadwalk and kids just love it.

One side of the broadwalk is the beach with playground, restrooms and picnic benches while the other side is lined with palm trees providing natural shades.

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.
