Sunset beach is located in Pacific Palisades, just South of the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and
Pacific Coast Highway. It is a few minutes away from Santa Monica and West Los Angeles.
This is the best learning spot in the Los Angeles area, therefore our usual class location. The waves
are soft and perfect for beginners. Many people surfing at Sunset are beginners, so you don't have to
Directions: From the end of the 10 Freeway or the Santa Monica Pier, go North on PCH about 4 miles to
Sunset Boulevard. Make a U-turn at the light, and go South about 400 yards. The meeting point is at the
top of the wooden stairs (between two blue portable toilets and the lifeguard tower), 400 yards South of
the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway.
Parking is usually not a problem, especially very early in the morning. There is free parking on the
ocean-side shoulder of PCH, between Sunset Boulevard and the Bel Air Bay Club. If you can't find
parking on PCH, there is paid parking in the Gladstones parking lot, just South of the restaurant
(entrance across from Sunset Boulevard). Please do respect the traffic signs, as illegal u-turns often
result in tickets.
