Santa Monica Beach is a popular seaside holiday retreat in Los Angeles. Boasting turquoise water and pristine sand beaches, this is a place teeming with waterfront restaurants, bars and shops, making it a site bustling with action both day and night. With magnificent seascape much adored by Hollywood film directors, this is where many movies and TV shows have been filmed. Santa Monica Beach sits at the end of Route 66, a road of great historic value that traverses across the US from east to west. As a cultural symbol, the signpost of Route 66 is a photo takers’ mecca.
Santa Monica is our first stop to Los Angeles and our first attraction to the United States. The scenery is really beautiful, so beautiful seascape is also favored by many Hollywood directors, here is also the scene of Korean drama "heir". When the day arrives, the sea breeze is really great. But the sky is very blue and beautiful, foreigners rush to the sea to play, we are blown in disorder in the wind. Santa Monica is also the end of Highway 66. One of the famous attractions in Los Angeles is a tourist attraction. There are many seagulls on the beach. They are not afraid of tourists at all. Some of them fly very low (a really fat seagull, aha haha). There is a small playground beside the beach. There are small Ferris wheels and roller coasters. If you have time, you can take your children to play.
Santa Monica Beach is one of the most famous beaches in Los Angeles. Santa Monica Pier, built between 1909 and 1916, is the oldest pier on the West Coast. It also has Los Angeles's most famous wharf carnival, including roller coasters, pirate boats, aerial suspension, merry-go-round and other recreational projects. Jack told Rose in the movie Titanic that he would bring Rose to Santa Monica on the Ferris Wheel. As a loyal fan who could still cry when watching Titanic three times, today we must see the Ferris Wheel! A concrete road has also been built on the beach for runners and cyclists. I can run by the sea in the morning, my husband likes it very much. At that time, the western development, here is also the end of the famous Highway 66, the end of the big brand erected here, this is also the last place Forrest Gump ran to, many people will take photos with this brand, need to queue up oh! ________ Ha-ha...
One of LA's best beaches! The sand is soft and the beach is broad. You can surf in a couple of spots - south of the pier is best (come early before its blown out). There are playgrounds here for kids, and while you are not super far from the town of santa monica, its far enough that you should pack a picnic. Parking can be brutal, especially on the weekends in summer, so the earlier you arrive the better!
Play at the beach or go to the Santa Monica Pier. The pier has an carnival-like amusement park called Pacific Park. http://www.pacpark.com. There is also a Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, which is underneath the Carousel at the pier. Great restaurants and possible celeb sightings. Bike Trail, fishing on the pier, surfing, swimming, and volleyball.
It's where I hang out. You can ride your bike there. Check out the William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davis "love nest." Eat at Back on the Beach. Order the Fred's salad.Go a bit further north to Will Rogers State Beach if you are a good volley ball player. Just say you are a friend of Cary and Allen! They may let you play.
I'm a regular beach volleyball player here. The sand is here very smooth with very little coarseness to it. There are people doing all kinds of activity here. Biking, jogging, kite flying, rollerblading, and of course volleyball. Free parking can be a little hard to find so be prepared to pay for the lots.
I love the peaceful vibes in Santa Monica, fresh (salty) air and endless views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean! Great for leisure, exercise, photography, water fun and more. Parking is difficult, but there are pay lots in the area. Make it a weekend trip explore the restaurants & hotels nearby!
This beach is gorgeous. We didn't get to spend too much time here but what little time we did have we loved. There's plenty to do, soft sand and a great location next to the Santa Monica Pier.
Like many locals, I never get tired of watching the sun set over the pastel blue color of the Pacific. Venice or Santa Monica Beach is the perfect location for this ultimate, eternal grand show of nature.
