On Pacific Coast Highway between Tuna Canyon Road and Las Flores Canyon Road.  Just north of topanga.

About Las Tunas

A narrow beach beneath the bluffs that holds a special attraction to surf casters. Because of how narrow the beach is there is little or no sand at high tide so this is somewhere you should only go when the tide is appropriate.

The lifeguard station is above the beach on the bluff beside the parking lot where the lifeguard can have a good view of the surfers in the ocean.

There are lots of rocks along the front and these make it a little hard to get straight down into the sea, and in the sea itself there are too many rocks to make swimming an option.  Parking in the lot is free as it is on the road.

Because of the closeness to the highway the beach may be a little noisy at times.  And because of the rocks in the water it doesn't make a good place for swimming or surfing although those are officially permitted.

Food: Food concession

There are lifeguards on the beach at day time.

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.
