This is a beautiful stretch of coast line just underneath Santa Monica. You should take your time when going there in order to go for a walk, rollerblade or go biking. But if you go for a walk, you can enjoy the landscape and the feeling much more. ;)

After your walk, you should go to the pier and grab a nicely chilled Margarita. Sunset is wonderful and the best place is that it's not really crowded, in fact, you can also find places where you can be all alone, if you'd like to.

Address:
1642 Ocean Front Walk, Santa Monica

Price:
Free

Opening Hours:
24/7 but don't go there after the night goes down.

How to get there:
Take the 10 East until you hit the beach and there you have it.
