    Take a stroll by the surf all the way to Santa Monica Pier and back - best walk ever and you get a tan quicker this way ;)

    It is a beautiful beach and invites for long walks in the sand and sea. Forget whatever disturbs you, and let go. Grab a coffee and some fruits and enjoy pure California feeling.

    Venice beach is timeless. The boardwalk has, and always has been, a melting pot for artists, and the eccentric, as well as modern trends. That way both types of people can enjoy themselves.
