One of the most desirable places to live in Southern California is Long Beach Peninsula and surrounding neighborhoods of Naples and Belmont Shore. The peninsula is a stretch of land that extends from Belmont Shore to its end at the mouth of San Gabriel River. The peninsula features rows of houses on one side facing the Pacific Ocean and on the other just a block away facing Los Alamitos Bay. The homes on the bay are typically where you'll see kayaks in residents' sand yards.
