I don't even like walking on the beach normally, because....well...it's hard. So adding needles and syringes to the mix, I'll skip it. Even when I do, I can't do barefoot.
If the beach is your thing, please be careful, as reports of medical supplies and needles have been reported near the Venice Beach Bridge. There is an active investigation as to how these are washing up on the beaches of Venice, and surrounding area beaches.
CNN has more info, including the tweets from the LA County Fire Department Lifeguard Division, which will keep you updated with the status of the investigation, as well as when those beaches will be safe to walk barefoot again.
