Fodor's Expert Review Dockweiler Beach

El Segundo Beach
Is there a dreamier way to top off your day at the beach than a bonfire at twilight? In L.A., where beach bonfires are largely illegal, you can have that along Dockweiler’s 3.7-mile stretch. Here, lighting up isn’t just permitted, it’s practically encouraged, thanks to fire pits peppered throughout. It’s probably for this reason that the beach is almost always a scene where young twenty- and thirtysomethings are roasting jumbo marshmallows on long, makeshift skewers as they guzzle beer in red cups.
