This is the best place in SanMo for a high up view and sunset. Once the sun goes down enjoy the equally beautiful people warming up their evening at a very swanky well curated bar with warm friendly service to boot.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

It's a relaxed upscale restaurant so smart casual is good. No jackets required. And it's located in California not Spain.
