We walked and cycled the stretch from Manhattan beach through to the end on Santa Monic. There are some great areas of architecture, and some really tacky parts along the beachfront.
The marina at Marina del Playa is a good place to gawk at some magnificent boats, or hire a sailboat and kayak and paddle around this huge marina

The boardwalk goes for miles of easy riding. Santa Monica pier has overpriced rides and restaurants.

The coastline is fabulous, clean beach... We got there at about 5/6 pm when the sun was setting and it was just fab to see the sun set. The entertainment at different sections of the pier was cool. The rides for kids are overpriced and you have to pay for parking. It was reassuring to see Santa Monica police at different parts of the bay. At around 8pm, lots of people were arriving to watch a song festival going on. All in all we had a lovely evening there.

If you never seen the sea before, Santa Monica Bay might give you some surprises. But it's not so good in my mind. Nothing special there. It's windy in winter.

the bay is a nice and beautiful place where you can relax either sitting and sunbathing on the beach or shopping nearby. A very unique atmosphere!
