“Best sunset in Santa Monica”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Santa Monica as a whole can be over hyped but Palisades is a beautiful park! The park extends north-south with the beach to the west and ocean ave to the east. Sitting high on a bluff you are actually looking down toward the beach which makes for better views. The whole place is very well taken care of and there is a walkway for runners, benches to relax, and plenty of shade under the massive palms. This is an excellent place to go for Sunset! You can see north to Malibu, due west to the ocean, and slightly south are good views of the pier.

“Absolutely beautiful!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Loved this park that looks over Santa Monica Beach. Great place to walk, jog, workout, yoga, etc. Be sure to check out the rose garden. Lots of people just taking in the sun.

I have the most incredible photos taken at sunset here! Bring your camera it's truly breathtaking. I loved seeing all the exotic plants and foliage too. This was right by our hotel The Fairmont.

“Lovely park and great for sunsets”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

This is a very pleasant, long narrow park on the bluffs above Santa Monica beach. It is full of tall, elegant palm trees and Mediterranean as well as sub-tropical plants. There are also lots of lawned areas. It has lovely views up and down Santa Monica Bay and over the beach and towards the sea. It's a great place to view the sunset. It is very relaxed and perfect for a range of activities such as easy walking, jogging, sitting and reading on a bench or on a lawn. It also attracts people meditate, do yoga and various other exercise regimes.
