Located on the southern end of Huntington Beach, the State Beach offers some of the easiest access for beach parking. Bolsa Chica State Beach is located on the northern end of Huntington Beach and is host to a number of surf schools due to its typically smaller waves.
All of Surf City USA's beaches offer wide, sandy beach and amenities including parking, restrooms, cold-water showers, beach volleyball courts and fire rings.
