laid back beachside town

Though the name Playa del Rey is Spanish for “Beach of the King” or “King’s beach”, this laid back beachside town is anything but highfalutin’. Known for its small town vibes and proud residents, big shopping malls and chain restaurants are few and far between with the community mostly hosting residences, small businesses and offices. The main beach at Dockweiler State Beach offers a wide sandy beach with lifeguards, fire pits, a paved bike path, and nice facilities. This is a great place for swimming and sunbathing while watching planes take off overhead. Playa Del Rey Beach offers volleyball courts, a long paved bike path, and a grass park across the street that has a kids playground and basketball courts. Locals call the north end of Playa Del Rey Beach “Toes Beach” for hanging ten (toes) on a surfboard.
