Beaches reopen after weekend holiday closures across Southern California

You may resume your sunbathing, relaxing on the sand and surfing some of the left over swell still lingering along the Southern California coastline.

After a short shutdown over the holiday weekend to keep crowds at bay, Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County beaches are back open as of Monday morning, July 6.



While most beaches were under a hard closure – with police, lifeguards and fencing keeping beachgoers away – some people found ways to enjoy the beach over the weekend, with San Clemente never shutting down and Seal Beach only closing on Saturday for the Fourth of July holiday before reopening at sunrise on Sunday.

If you do go to the beach, be warned there’s still plenty of swell with waves in the 3-foot to 5-foot range at some beaches, so beware of strong surf and rip currents  and swim near a lifeguard. Also, a thick fog is blanketing the coast Monday morning, making it tough for lifeguards to see surfers and swimmers out in the water.

For experienced wave riders, enjoy it while you can. Waves ease up through the week to drop to 3-foot to 4-foot rides before decreasing in size even more to the 2-foot to 3-foot range by the end of the week and into next weekend.
