This Beautiful Beach In Southern California Is A Hidden Gem With A Clever Name And A Sweet Surfing History

Back in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, Playa del Rey, California was known as a great surf spot.

Russ, who is now nearly 70 years old, claims, “my years growing up in Playa del Rey were the absolute best years of my youth.”

Toes Beach is located at Culver Blvd and Pacific Ave. The best public parking is near Del Rey Lagoon Park, where you can find a parking lot as well as street parking.

A special thank you to Jennifer Weissman and Russ Peterson, who shared their wonderful memories of Toes Beach, Playa del Rey, and the special history of this beautiful area!
