peninsula homes facing ocean long beach
The classic brown shingled home facing directly onto the Pacific is dwarfed by newer mansions on the beachfront side of Ocean Blvd. on the Peninsula in Long Beach.

For decades the Peninsula neighborhood in Long Beach consisted of mostly small, traditional shingled beach cottages and homes at the far east end of Ocean Blvd.  And there are still some old cottages remaining on this narrow spit of land that faces the ocean on one side and Alamitos Bay and Naples Island on the other side.  Homes facing the ocean have a view of Catalina Island, some 26 miles away and instant access to the beach that is relatively little used by the public.

leeway sailing center long beach The Leeway Sailing Center is on Ocean Blvd. at the entry to the Peninsula.  This is where the Long Beach Department of Parks and Recreation gives sailing, windsurfing and kayaking lessons.

alamitos bay yacht club The Alamitos Bay Yacht Club is at the very end of the Ocean Blvd. in the Peninsula neighborhood in Long Beach.
The club is, of course, private, but the beach area along the Peninsula is public.
