Beaches Of Los Angeles
From sensuous South Bay to trendy Malibu, the LA Beaches are second-to-none. And, they all have differing personalities that make them even more exciting to visit. So, without further adieu, here are a few that we think could be in the running for the title of best LA Beach California:
Manhattan Beach is all about being trendy enough to have been the filming location for a number of popular TV shows over the years. It’s also where you’ll find the beautiful people, bodysurfing by the pier, and endless miles of beach volleyball courts. And, when you get to the end of the Manhattan Beach pier, you’ll discover an amazing aquarium filled with sea creatures of all kinds, as well as a touch pool. The water is fine at this beach, as is the surfing, but be advised that you can only surf on the pier’s south side and boogie board on the north side. In addition, there’s no swimming allowed in those areas close to the pier.
Malibu’s Surfrider Beach
When it comes to surfing, Malibu’s Surfrider Beach is the best. And, it isn’t necessary to be experienced at it either. You can still enjoy everything about this beach even if you’re a first-timer or not even a surfer at all. You can sit on the beautiful sandy beach and watch all the surfers paddling furiously as they vie for that perfect wave. The overall vibe of this popular beach is enough to make you feel as cool as the local surfers are.
Santa Monica Beach
Santa Monica Beach is considered by most local beachgoers to be the most popular of all LA beaches. It’s two miles long, offering lots of room for stretching your legs, taking a ride on your bike, or setting up a rousing game of beach volleyball. And, the historic Santa Monica Pier is just south of the beach, offering good food, rides, and fun galore. Santa Monica also offers some amazing beachy LA Hotels for your romantic stay at the beach, whether it’s for a night or a week.
Venice Beach has long been a favorite of both locals and visitors alike. It’s one of the best places in the world for people-watching. The infamous Ocean Front Walk is an attraction you’ll be glad you didn’t miss on your trip to LA. You can enjoy a stroll along the Venice boardwalk and see everything from bodybuilders to guys juggling chainsaws. Yes, that’s right, chainsaws! You can also see all kinds of folk artists, palm readers, and a variety of musicians. Oh, and while you’re there, you can get an amazing panoramic view of the Pacific, too!
Hermosa Beach and the surrounding community offer a vibe that’s as hip as the name. It’s one of those beach cities where just as many locals are seen hanging out at outdoor cafes and shopping in the local shops at Pier Plaza as there are tanning on the beach. The shoreline is gorgeous, however, and not to be missed with its pristine sand, paved biking and walking areas, and many beach volleyball courts.
