I finally made it to this place! I have seen photos of this spot for years, and thankfully had to go to LA last week - and snuck out for a bit to shoot it! It's a beautiful sight to behold in the soft light of blue hour. While I am not one for mucking about on touristy piers, I am a big fan of getting down by the water and catching some swirly lights reflected in the ocean - good times! Magical Sunset at the docks in Marina del Rey!!! #waterlust #hiking #colorful #sunset #clouds When one thinks of Santa Monica, the attraction of the Pier inevitably comes to mind. There are times though when the view under the pier becomes more interesting than what's happening above. I was looking for a pathway shortcut at the Santa Monica Pier when I chanced upon this golden opportunity. #StunningStructures Venice Canals, Los Angeles. We got a little place off AirBNB a block away from the waterfront in Venice Beach. Their claim to fame was Jim Morrison had a friend who lived in the building and he used to sleep over there and write songs on the roof.
I really enjoyed Vencie Beach, it had loads of activity and lots of characters along the board walk. The beach was simply amazing and was cool to watch highly experienced surfers doing their thing.
#BeachBound Cloudy morning at the pier.

The trail is 4.6 miles with 1135 ft elevation gain and is well kept. In spring or early summer the waterfall is flowing but can be quite dry in the fall. The summit of Skull Rock offers a great view of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding areas along the Pacific Coast Highway. This beach is three miles long, has a picnic area, shops and pier. Visitor activities include volleyball, basketball and a running strip along the beach, and inspiring views of the Santa Monica Mountains year-round. I call this, The park got busy during the Labor Day weekend. The beach was full as well. Santa Monica beach on the north side of the pier is separated from the city by the palisades (an ocean bluff) and the Pacific Coast Highway. A series of bridges, walkways and stairs provides access to the beach from the city.Tell us what made this place so special.
Amazing what the summer heat can bring to lots of people! Colorful houses at Venice Beach's boardwalk. Hues over Venice Beach, minutes from the hustle, miles from the noise. #BeachBound I can never get tired of palm trees and the sun setting at the beach. This was taken close to the Venice Beach Pier near LAX airport in California. One of the most impressive sunsets was at the Venice beach. If it could be slower like hours.
I’ve rent a bike from Santa Monica and gave a break here. Just to watch waves and sunset with peace.

It features numerous restaurants as well as an amusement park with roller coaster and Ferris wheel. #Pier #Sunset Sun, beach and fun: Santa Monica pier!
Only 26km away from Los Angeles😎 Bringing motorcycles, surf, and coffee together into their own unique culture, Deus offers a great venue to kick back for an afternoon. Grab a Flat White, chat with friends, surf the net, or cruise the awesome collection of custom merchandise, at this Venice gem.
The view from the Santa Monica Pier carousel. Magic everywhere! Watching the sunset from the pier is an exhilarating experience. Another great night Sunset run
#market Venice Beach back in 2014. Definitely a must-see in LA. Full of artsy paintings, crafty bits and bobs or some quirky souvenirs like these colorful sculls. Fun! Crosses on the beach for the fallen in the Iraq war. Beautiful place for hiking or climbing, specially on hidden trails
#malibu #california #malibucreekstatepark #hiking Santa Monica Pier The California coastline has stunning sunsets all over, but one of my favorites is by Santa Monica pier. Whether it's the clouds or the weather conditions or something else, the colors produced during the sunset on this beach are always stunning, bordering on unreal. #SantaMonica #California #GoldenHour #weekendgetaway Beautiful sunset at will Rodgers state beach. Made it to the Pacific, y'all! Enjoyed a late night walk around the Santa Monica Pier with good company. Try the roller coaster, Ferris wheel or other games for entertainment! #santamonicapier #santamonica #california #route66 #roadtrip Venice canals are a perfect place for an evening stroll in Santa Monica. The neighborhood is picture perfect and the sunset glow reflecting in the canals will not leave you indifferent to this beautiful place. Incredible sunset over Venice Beach. Rent a bike when you're here and cycle to nearby Santa Monica Pier.
#SpringFun #lifeatexpedia #BeachBound #red is the colour of fun at night in Santa Monica. Creepy clown to welcome you to CVS in Santa Monica Fun place to hang out. Many activities going on. Can you see the surfer under the wave? www.FunToBeFree.com Santa Monica is basically is the playground for the beach bums in the LA. Most of the action in Santa Monica is centred around the Santa Monica Pier, where the official end of Route 66 is located.
Just south of the pier is a stretch of beach that acts as an outdoor jungle gym. It’s actually the original location of Muscle Beach, which was later moved to Muscle Beach Venice.
This is where fitness junkies, acrobats and gymnasts come to bend, twist and swing on a variety of public workout equipment, including parallel bars, ropes and rings. If you’re looking for a place to people watch, this is it.
#SpringFun Sunset on the Pacific. An amazing day at one of the nicest beaches in Cali less crowded than Hunnington but also has a pier. Santa Monica Ferris wheel, L.A. Venice Beach is great for people-watching all year round. If you go in the winter it'll still be sunny out (come on, this is California), but the crowds will have died down. California's winter sunsets are beautifully golden as well.
Pro tip: they are even nicer accompanied by a burrito. :) (#beach) Right off the busy beach, these canals are quiet and beautiful. Stroll along the walkway. Winter time at the beach I've got my kicks on #Route66..... LITERALLY! The route starts in Santa Monica. Right in front of your very eyes, all you have to do is LOOK! If you take the actual Route 66 that #RoadTrip 2,448 miles from Santa Monica until Chicago. Santa Monica sunsets are my favorite Beautiful sunset at Venice Beach. #roadtrip #beach #sunset Venice Beach at sunset
#Bestof5 Getty Gardens Great little Stunning wall potrait on Abbot Kinney street, LA. Hard to believe that the expressions, flying hair are all etched on the wall. You got to see it to believe it!  Venice Canals I found the beach to be average and the boardwalk to be dirty, scary and smelled strongly of marijuana...but the sunset was sure pretty :) Venice, a neighborhood of Los Angeles just south of Santa Monica, was developed by tobacco tycoon Abbot Kinney as the One of my favorite places in L.A. Great destination for tourists and locals alike.

#EndlessSummer Red velvet waffle with vanilla bean cream cheese drizzle and of course bacon! Venice Beach is just like what you see on TV. One of those places you have to visit while in California.
Take the time to walk the entire length and stick your head into some of the shops. Simply beautiful.
#BeachBound Quiet and clear morning on Santa Monica pier. Checking out the local fliers at the Venice Beach Skate Park - California 2015. A must stop for breakfast or brunch if you’re in Venice Beach! Order something savory and something sweet. Impeccable service and to-die-for creative menu. Can’t wait to return! #sweetspot #thepeachmelba Truffle burger from Umami Burger at Fred Segal. Yum! For a casual Sunday, stroll through the quaint Santa Monica Farmers Market to pick up some fresh produce, hummus, and various arts and crafts. Be sure to save room for lunch at Crepes Dusigne or one of the other local vendors. The coffee from Alana's Coffee Roasting Co. is a must.
Every Sunday 9-2pm. This is one sexy hotel. If the cabana and pool in the picture look familiar, you're probably a fan of Entourage. They filmed a number of scenes here. Great lobby/bar and generally really cool vibe at this place in Santa Monica, within walking distance of everything cool in town (beach, pier, restaurants, shopping, etc). Very hip spot. Whether you prefer sweet or savory, Bru's Wiffle will have a waffle for you!
Try the Waco, a delicious waffle/taco combination with crispy chicken. Yum! They also serve beer and wine. Santa Monica Pier Visit the Santa Monica Pier

#BvSWater Great spot for brunch in Venice! Our table ordered avocado toast, 9 grain pancakes, breakfast burrito and an açaí bowl! Everything was great, we arrived a few minutes before 10am and easily were seated on a Thursday morning. They also do fresh squeezed juice! #brunch Iconic Even though I'm scared of heights, it don't mean I can't take a shot of a ferris wheel especially on the historic pier at Santa Monica. Take a book. Leave a book. Unbelievably beautiful old, and huge sycamore tree at main entrance to Fairmount in Santa Monica. Stayed here unexpectedly and it was great. Be sure to have an evening cocktail at the Bungalow; incredibly cool spot on property. Hash brown Benedict with maple bacon!
