location: Hobie Beach
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. This is actually Long Beach (no big surprise there). But this particular section of the Long Beach coast is known as Alamitos Beach -- probably because of Alamitos Avenue, which marks the area's west edge. (Alamitos Avenue is what Shoreline Drive is called north of Ocean Blvd.)
It's on the far east edge of the Shoreline Marina and its long parking lot - where the marina/lot ends and the beach begins.
you're familiar with the landmark Villa Riviera (at Shoreline
Drive & Ocean Blvd), it's the beach just below that building.
You can also see Viktor's apartment tower (the International Tower) in the background.
(There's an interesting bit of Dexter trivia regarding the real Hobie beach: Way back in the third episode of the very first season of Dexter - when they were still really filming in Miami - they shot a funeral scene on the actual Hobie Beach.)
I shot the photo below in 2012, looking up, northwest, from the beach.
Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
