    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.

    Praia maravilhosa! A princípio achei que ia gostar mais de Santa Mônica pelo estilo meio alternativo de Venice, mas me senti muito bem no local, tudo muito limpo e organizado, pista de skate, etc

    Este paisaje no se puede dejar de ver. El atardecer en la costa oeste de los EEUU. Todo un espectaculo ver el sol esconderse en el horizonte del Océano Pacifico. ❤

    Ótima praia. O passeio pelo calçadão é inevitável, com muitos artistas e muita coisa acontecendo ao mesmo tempo. Se tiver de skate esse é o lugar com pista e muito espaço.
