  • This smaller cove is my favorite. There are rocks on both sides for exploring tide pools and taking walks (when the tide is lower) to the other beaches.  more »
  • Have not been to the beach here in 13 years, ever since sister-in-law moved to Marina Del Ray. She had a lovey place that she called home for a couple of years, but husband-to-be lured her to LA...  more »

  • Always beautiful here...can be alot of scuba divers....a local lady's dog tried to bite my son, then she was very rude about me trying to scare her dog away from my 10 year old...telling us to "go home" and get out of her place, that SHE lives here. What a "C U next Tuesday" ....then another local lady with a dreadlocked poodle came up and apologized for the rude hag who's dog had assaulted my son. So I won't say the locals are rude, because some are quite hospitable. If not for the loose dog on the beach and it's loose owner, I'd say our Shaw's cove experience was splendid. I totally recommend this spot for snorkeling and tide pools
  • It's beautiful, don't come here.
