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! 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 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! Hues over Venice Beach, minutes from the hustle, miles from the noise. #BeachBound 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.

While finding an anchor at the bottom of the ocean is nothing new for the rescue boat captain, this anchor is believed to be at least 100 years old, a relic from the days when the area was a major shipping port.
Greger, a 20-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, was about two miles up the coast from the Santa Monica Pier when he made the discovery. The anchor now rests in a garden at the county lifeguard station on Ocean Front Walk. Chicken, waffles, and bacon oh my! Santa Monica Pier at the end of historic Route 66 is a great place to spend a day or night. 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!

#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. #Hiking at #TemescalCanyon #Exploring #Outdoors Made it to the Pacific, y'all!

Creepy clown to welcome you to CVS in Santa Monica 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.

Great Santa Monica bar. Red velvet waffle with vanilla bean cream cheese drizzle and of course bacon! Quiet and clear morning on Santa Monica pier. Checking out the local fliers at the Venice Beach Skate Park - California 2015. 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

Bravissimi!!! How can you ever get tired of sunset views like this? #LoveMyTown Looking for a spot 😱😱😱😱😱Mother of God . Santa Monica Beach is one of the most visit in Los Angeles CA 🤗🤘🏼🤘🏼📸 you have to see the parking 😂😂😂😂 Great views over the pacific. 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. 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!

Every Thursday's on summer we have free concerns at the beach 😊 Santa Monica at sunset. Perfect to see the blue sky fade, complimented by the palm tree silhouettes. Consider standing here at the top of the pier instead of on it when it's very busy. #blue

#EndlessSummer Nike store. Broadway & 3rd st Surfing Golden Hour Some famous signage on the Santa Monica Pier. This pier has a lot of restaurants and themed parks perfect for holidaying. I'm all ears. A curious #sculpture at Flying Saucers Cafe. Good day at the beach. Sidewalk #stencil on #VeniceBeach #streetart #graffiti It's a lot of fun hiring bikes from Santa Monica pier and riding down to Venice Beach for the shopping, people watching and entertainment on the boardwalk. There is also Muscle Beach and a freak show for something extra. Wonderful Spanish lattes at Urth! Even Betty Boop eats here. Quality steakhouse oozing with great atmosphere and LA history. Bring your roller blades, a bicycle or any other vessel with wheels and soak up the sunshine in motion. Not only are you at the beach, you're at one of California's most iconic destinations. It's so....California. #beach The view north #magichour #Venice #beach #sunset We just stayed here for hours - my son newer got tired of watching the cool and skilled skaters at Venice Skate Park A view of Santa Monica Pier #bestof5 Getting my kicks...
