We had a lovely afternoon in Santa Monica.

The beach walk was lovely, it felt very safe and there is much to see and do.

There were lots of placed to buy snacks and souvenirs and the vibe was relaxed everywhere.

The beach was amazing and views stunning
Unfortunately because of strong tides we were unable to enter the water
There were no toilet facilities there which would have be advantageous to
Many being so remote and not easy to access

We did a quad bike tour which took us to this absolutely stunning beach. Definitely the best beach I have ever seen. Cant spend to much time here as there is nothing here but so worth a visit.

We went to the beach on a cool morning and so only a few people were on the beach at that time. The beach is very wide. We saw several sellers with little wagons with beach toys, towels, beach mats, etc for sale. (So if you forget or didn't pack any of these items - you may be able to get them from one of the beach sellers.) There are also restrooms on the beach and a walkway and some benches.

One of the best beaches in the world with a great cafe serving drinks & food.
Just hope the big chain hotels building and buying up land don't spoil it. As it is untouched not spoilt at the moment. But looks like hotel chains are coming.
