Cerritos Beach is the place to be for warm waves, surfing, swimming and more. Known locally as one of the best beaches in the area, this is a great place to relax and get in the water. Many other beaches have breaks or riptides that make it dangerous to swim. Know that there are lots of beach vendors here but they are not agressive. You can also take in a very reasonably priced massage if you're so inclinde. One note, pick up food or beverages at the market on the road in as there isn't anything currently available on the beach.
