    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.

    Great place for people watching, make sure to visit during the weekend daytime.

    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.
