Dockweiler Beach Trip Planner – What you should know before you go! – MUST HAVE LIST

 Dockweiler Beach – Make it a hassle free experience!

1. The park closes at 10pm and if you’re parked on Vista del Mar, the parking meter maids start ticketing right at 10:01.  If you’re going to stay late then pay the $10.00 to park in the lot.

2. People arrive at Dockwieler at around 7 am to secure a fire-pit.  GET THERE EARLY!!

3. Wear shoes that you’re able to scale down the steep hill to get down to the beach.  You’ll more than likely be carrying  wood, coolers and whatnot which adds to the difficulty of the descent.  There are stairs but not near enough if you parked on Vista del Mar.

4. Parking lot charges $10.00 – Make a right turn when Imperial hits Vista Del Mar, make sure to park properly and away from the red zones, parking enforcers are plentiful and on the prowl.

5. Once again, do yourself a favor:  Fork over the $10 to park inside if you’re going to stay here late.

6. There are 70 fire-pits.

7. Personal BBQ grills are allowed.

8. Love it or not, you’re going to view some amazing planes flying off into the sunset over the ocean.

9. DO NOT leave your spot unattended if you have food, no it’s not because people might steal your things, it’s because the seagulls will decimate your food (Good night sweet hotdogs I hardly knew ye’!)
