We ran/walked/biked on the beach path during our recent vacation. The path is well maintained, and you can run for miles with an awesome ocean/beach view! You can easily go from venice, past santa monica, and further north. There is exercise equipment, swings, etc at Santa Monica beach. There are restaurants at different points along the path. If your hotel... More

Wanna enjoy SoCal life? Bring or rent a bike and ride (or skate or walk) the wide bike path from Pacific Palisades (Will Rogers State Beach) to Palos Verdes Peninsula. Serious cyclists and leisurely riders both enjoy riding next to the sand with a view to the west of the Pacific Ocean and to the east the various neighborhoods ...... More

The path was clean, very little sand since it's right next to the beach, lots of fun, small mounds to over, perfect breeze since your in the sun all the way through?

I made a reservation for the bike tour in Santa Monica via Viator. Unfortunately on the same day of the tour I was ill and couldn't physically make the tour. The first thing I did was to cancel the trip from the Viator iPhone app, providing the reason and asking for a refund. I requested the cancellation 3 hours before... More

We rode our rental bikes for hours and hours ... day dreaming as we looked at the water and mountains towards Malibu. Wish I could do this every weekend !

Can't think where I'd rather be. But be careful of the time. It gets busy and crowded especially on the weekends.

Well kept, very nice views, safe to bike. You get to bike by the Annenberg Community Beach House, Venice beach, muscle beach, "under" Santa Monica's Pier…and keep going.

I ride on the bike path every time I visit Santa Monica. It is a wonderful way to see the beach and watch people, especially in Venice Beach. The trail extends several miles north of the Santa Monica Pier to Will Rogers State Beach and Temescal Canyon Road. It extends south through Venice Beach to the Venice Pier. From there,... More

We hired bikes and rode from Santa Monica pier to Marina Del Ray with the children which is about 7 miles. 90% is on the bike path, the kids really enjoyed it. Great way to see Venice beach, the lovely beach properties plus all the quirky people ;) We rented our bikes from Santa Monica Bike Centre which is a... More
