“where the surfers go”

Topanga State Beach is located off the Pacific Coast Highway. This is a somewhat secluded beach setting and offers a bit of a point break for some great kayak surfing. Other activities include swimming, surfing, and fishing. There is a picnic area and catamaran storage. A general store is across the street. A short decent down easy stairs takes you to the beach. The beach has bathrooms and a freshwater shower rinse area, lifeguard building, and police sub-station. There is a sandy beach for bathers. The main surfing area has round smooth rocks at the waterline but further off the main breakers is great kayak surfing with sandy beach landings.Directions: From the 405 S, exit Sunset Blvd. and travel west to Pacific Coast Highway, turn N on PCH approximately two miles. Topanga State Beach is on the west side of the road.

Drive down the winding canyon road to the Pacific Coast Highway to Topanga State Beach. It's been drawing surfers since the 1950s, but if you're not into hanging ten, try kayaking, swimming, or fishing instead.

Topanga State Beach is the proper beach to spend your Saturday or Sunday morning. It might be overcrowded by surfers, but you can still enjoy the crystal clear waters of the beach.

If you like surfing just join the group, otherwise just walk carefully at the beach or just do some fishing.

Finally if you get hungry just sit at one of the restaurants and food places located at the street trespassing the beach.

Great location for everyone.
