On a warm day is the perfect way to get exercise and sun! Tip- On a cold day wear a long sleeve shirt, the breeze from the ocean makes the trip a uncomfortable.

Along the beach with plenty of sea breeze, sunshine and safe from cars- it is a real enjoyment to bike on this path. Do need to be watchful as there are many people and groups are also enjoying the bike path as if there are no bikes at all.

Given the number of people out there on any given day this bike path works great. Great views all along the way and separated from pedestrians most of the way.

We enjoyed riding this very flat and well marked bike trail. For two people who are in decent shape, a few miles on this path should be no problem and a no-brainer. The paths offer beautiful scenery!

Just do it. You'll love it. Santa M to Manhattan Beach for lunch and return. 20+ miles all-in. Doable for reasonably fit bods.

Hired bikes on the beach front rode down to the marina, great day out and a nice and easy ride. Busy in places so be on your guard for other beach users, great to do on a weekend.
