Figure about a 45 minute drive depending on traffic to Santa Monica. (it's only about 15 miles) Add another 10 minutes for Venice or Malibu.

I found going via La Brea Ave to Rt.10 faster than going via Santa Monica Blvd.

Rt 10 leads right onto Rt.1 which puts you right on the beach at Santa Monica.

If you want Malibu, continue going north on Rt.1.

If you want Venice, you could head south from Santa Monica along the coast via Ocean Ave.

Access for SM and Venice beaches are not a problem though parking sometimes could be. As for Malibu, parking and access was challenging though someone here with more experience with Malibu could help you with that.
