    Delightful beach with plenty of fire pits. Get there early if you want one for a bonfire in the evening.

    Park on Brookhurst above Bushard for a free spot and a fat beach with pits, v-ball and tables.

    If one could share the endless horizon of blue sky and hope with someone who needed it, they might still be alive today. #suicide #prevention

    Park closes at 10pm. Come around 8:30 to 9pm if you want bonfire during weekend; otherwise you will need to come around 8am.

    Don't make you fire too large or with stinky wood. It blows inland and covers our house with ashes and smells bad. Thank you.

    If you park in the residential streets up magnolia or brookhurst you can beat the $15 parking fee. Same thing goes for north of main st... Park on the numbered streets and you don't have to pay

    The lifeguard towers are labeled with identical numbers, which makes giving directions basically a bitch. It's one of the cleanest beaches. But don't take rides from strange people with surreys!

    Do not put ur alcohol in any type of ice chest. It must be hidden amongst ur personal belongings. Pour ur clear alcohol into a water bottle and keep it amongst other legit water bottles
