    What is the closest beach to Los Angeles? Like if you fly into LAX, what is the first beach you could get to? Is it a good beach or is it worth going a little farther out to find another beach? Are the beaches crowded this time of year? Thanks for your advice about Los Angeles beaches.

    There are no beaches within easy access of LAX. the easiest beaches to visit are Santa Monica, Hermosa Beach and Marina del Rey. Santa Monica will be the closest of them all.

    go to Manhattan Beach

    I live just 6 miles from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) so I know what I would do if I had a long layover there longer than three hours. Jump in a taxi and go to Manhattan Beach. It should cost no more than $30 but be sure to ask the driver to take you down Sepulveda hill. As you go down the hill you’ll see the famous Manhattan Beach Pier.
