“I personally love it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

I have to give it five stars because it's just a favorite experience of our visit to LA. I could give four stars because of minor complaints like it being crowded and such, but come on, that is part of the experience. Great beach, great hotels, dining and shopping close by, and an amusement park on the pier! What's not to love?

“Great place to stroll and relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

If you're visiting LA and check out Santa Monica, kick back at the pier and beach if you have time. Although busy and often crowded during the summer, your trip to Santa Monica is not complete without some shots of yourself at the pier and beach. Palisades park on the bluffs above is also a nice place to stroll.

“Beautiful all over!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Was killing some time running around LA and it came to me that I never been to Santa Monica Beach. Shame on me right? So I took the 10-15min drive(30min with traffic) and I was not disappointed. Nice scenery, clean beach. Lifeguards mile apart from each other. And not to mention all the beautiful people your surrounded by. Great place for a jog. Places like this make you feel proud to be a Californian. So much to do in LA.
