Dockweiler Beach State Park
Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles, California
Right alongside LAX: Los Angeles International Airport is a popular beach known as “Dockweiler State Beach”. Part of this beach is directly under the flight path of the airport and therefore has become a popular spot to watch planes land and take off. It is also a popular location for training people to hang-glide.It is also one of the very few beaches in Los Angeles were beach bonfires are permitted. Adjacent to El Segundo and connected to Playa del Rey, this can become a very popular beach for picnics, summer outings, etc. In between the beach and the airport is the ghost town of Palisades del Rey.
