I was walking my dog on a path by the ocean and noticed a large isolated collection of bright red bugs I don’t recall ever seeing in my life despite living in this general area all my life.

These are Mediterranean Red Bugs, an invasive species that was recently introduced to Southern California.  They generally get noticed when they form large aggregations of both adult and immature individuals.
