Strikingly different from the city's concrete jungle, Long Beach offers a welcome retreat with its long stretches of soft sand, clean water, and open sky. The beach has a resort destination feel, with a long bamboo boardwalk perfect for a long run, a separate bicycle lane, and plenty of benches.

Onsite amenities include bike rental and beach volleyball courts. Using our custom trip planner, Long Beach attractions like Long Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
