Summary:

This is a good trainer hike with some nice views of Santa Monica Bay and Malaga Cove. The route starts at Torrance Beach which is actually in Redondo Beach (go figure) and ends up in beautiful Malaga Cove. During the trip you will be walking through soft sand, hard sand, light trail and pavement. Try this at sunset for a change of pace or bring a swim suit for a nice dip afterwards.
