About Junipero Beach
Junipero Beach is also known as Cherry Beach. The narrow, sandy beach is right outside the Long Beach Museum of Modern Art , which is visited as much for the displays of works by local artists as for the excellent restaurant. The beach runs from the Long Beach lifeguard building all the way to the Belmont memorial pier.
As a county beach, Junipero Beach has bike paths/trails access, bus stop nearby, fishing, food and drink, lifeguard on beach, restrooms, showers, street parking and volleyball court.
As for food, Claire's At the Museum is a renowned restaurant just over the street from the beach. On the beach itself is a branch of the great Alfredo Beach Club.
