Did not feel safe here. Lots of homeless and high/drunk. Did not feel safe to walk on my own. One evening a fight broke out and 6 cop cars came. Garbage all the way along the beach. Full review by Deanna K

The beach is wide and fine sand but not too crowded. Is this the Los Angeles we always hear about? There are old buildings and hotels around. A neglected place Full review by svetlanafokina69

On my last trip to LA, we did not get to the beach or at least Santa Monica as we were in Long Beach. The beaches you really think about when you think Los Angeles are the beaches along Santa Monica… Full review by Grover R

Hi We drove Route 66 last September and this was the end of the last stage for us. We did not go to Malibu though so I cannot help with that. Hollywood to Santa Monica pier is a 30ish minute drive depending on the time of day. As you are probably aware the traffic in LA is notorious.. The pier and beach at Santa Monica are great and there are some handy multistory car parks tucked away down the side streets that are a better price than those on the sea front. If you get time I would also go slightly down the coast to Muscle Beach and Venice boardwalk this is a real experience. Enjoy.

Yes you can rent chairs and just about anything you need at the beach. Check with Perry’s as they are a Santa Monica institution and have locations along the boardwalk and open like 9a …
