“Santa Monica Beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

What a walk to the ocean, very long walk to get to the water. Not at all crowded when we were there, but there is much better beach access elsewhere.

“A huge beach!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

It was great on the boardwalk especially since we had hired bikes at our hotel. Quite a trek to get to the beach. The Pier is iconic. It's the end of Route 66. Great atmospshere.

“Beach”

Nice place to enjoy the sun or simply go for a walk. The area is beautiful. A lot interesting things to see here, especially in the evening. Not to mention the beautiful sunset.

“Nice beach and surrounds.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Clean beach, well maintained, raked daily, a lot of coast with mountains in the background give a beautiful setting for some nice photos, add in a visit to the pier, and your trip will be complete.

“SUNSET!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

The most fantastically beuatiful sunset I have ever witnessed. Watching the sky change colour as the sun bowed out for the evening was truly spectacular. I will come back just for this.
