Playa Del Rey Beach is the wide sandy beach in front of the Playa Del Rey neighborhood of Los Angeles. The beach is northwest of LAX Airport on state land at the north end of Dockweiler State Beach and south of the Marina Del Rey Harbor entrance. This beach like the rest of Dockweiler State Beach is operated by Los Angeles County not the state. 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.
The best public parking is near Del Rey Lagoon Park on Pacific Avenue where a parking lot and street spots are available. Another public lot is located at the north end of Pacific Avenue
