Santa Monica Vacation Travel Information

Santa Monica State Beach – South Beach in Santa Monica, California

The south part of Santa Monica State Beach is located south of the Santa Monica Pier and north of Venice Beach. On the other side of the pier you’ll find North Beach. The city of Santa Monica operates this California state beach and Los Angeles County provides the lifeguards. South of the pier there are several different parks and public parking lots with beach access. These parks have open fields, sport courts, picnic areas, playgrounds for kids, and even a large human-scale chess board. The original Muscle Beach is still located near the pier with workout facilities for bodybuilders. Bike riders and skaters zoom along on the Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail, a paved path that winds through the back part of the beach. Volleyball courts are all along this wide sandy beach that is big enough to land a 747 on.

The Santa Monica Pier has the Pacific Park Amusement Park complete with rides and arcade games, restaurants, shops, and the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Parking lots for South Beach are located along Ocean Avenue and Barnard Way. The main park centered on South Beach is at the west end of Ocean Park Boulevard.
