Great beach with plenty of parking space (park on temescal street for free) or use the state beach parking. By Palasides between Topanga and Santa Monica
Soft white sand and easy access bathrooms and snack bar. Right off bike path.
The beach at Santa Monica is very clean and tidy with plenty of rubbish bins. It also has many life guard post but they may not all be manned. It is a very wide flat beach that slopes as it nears the waters edge so plenty of room to play. It has board walks and shower points. Lovely on a hot sunny…
If you want to chill at the beach, this is a great one to visit! Not as crowded as the Santa Monica one... you can find free parking on Temescal Canyon Rd. as long as you get there early enough and don't mind a little walking.
Fantastic beach for exercising: biking/walking/running ... concrete path goes up and down the beach.
“Fantastic breakfast and lunch spot about an 8 minute drive up Sunset. Park at a meter and wait about 15 minutes for a table, but the food is great and reasonably priced. Low key atmosphere, but keep an eye out for celeb sightings. NOTE - they don't serve alcohol here. ”
“Integrative pharmacy. Great for vitamins and alternative meds, but also a regular pharmacy”
“Good happy hour. Chicken lettuce cups, pork chop, wagu meatballs, pizza all good choices. ”
