Lovely sandy beach with plenty of space. Parking near the pier for $13. Lots of homeless people around but they are not bothering anyone.

nice beach- water refreshing if you can handle it. good surfing. great bike path that can take you all the way to the end of Venice. lots of good people watching.
Beautiful sights and beaches. Hire a bicycle and cycle along the coast....perfectly laid out cycletracks which are widely used by residents and tourists. Pier was lovely and the food at the restaurant at the end of the pier was lovely and well priced.
Had a nice time with family here. The view is amazing, exactly what you can expect from California, especially the land escape. The beach is massive with many attrition and wonderful food outlets along the pier. I recommend that you plan to spend all day...More
Ahhh, bring a towel and some sunscreen. There are cafe/rental type places called Perry's along the way to rent equipment like chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bikes, etc. Enjoy!!
The Santa Monica's beach is a wonderful place. You can see the beautiful landscape there, walk and observe the beach. There are a lot of excelent restaurants and you can eat a delicious seafood or walk on the 66 trail . Enjoy it!
