GORGEOUS at sunrise and sunset. Large Beach with plenty of access for families, couples, or even singles. The walk along the edge of the beach next to the water is serene and calming while the edge next to the bike and walk path is bustling and full of life and energy. Be prepared to see anything and everything here. Great place to people watch, for sure!! All around beautiful and fun Beach. :)

I'm in love with this beach. The water is a little cold, but once you are inside you won't feel it anymore. My friend wears leggings so she won't be too cold. At least that is the excuse she gives me. Everyone else thinks she is crazy. You can come swim and if you get tired you can go do a little shopping at the boardwalk. They have everything you need there. If you forgot something on your little trip to the beach you can also look for it there. This beach gets really packed on the weekends. I try to avoid all that and come on the weekdays when it is nice and calm. FYI Summer time, always packed. Please if you eat here do not leave your food behind. That attracts the seagulls and then they come back for more. Don't throw food at them because they will not leave you alone. My husband's friend came here with us to surf, but I do not recommend it. It didn't look like there was good enough waves for him to get on the board. He would just lay on it. Never mind, don't listen to me. He was learning how to surf so maybe it wasn't the waves at this beach. There is a lot of parking lots and you have to pay. There are also meters on the street, but it's better to park at a lot. If you find a meter parking make sure to read the sign twice to avoid any confusion and parking tickets. Last time I came I found a spot in front of Ado Restaurant and we had to walk a few blocks. I came late so it was free meter parking. If you love cold ocean water and you love to shop than hurry over here because it's one of the best spots to do both!

Weird, dirty, and undeniably unique I hope this quirky chunk of boardwalk never changes. Visit, observe, participate, just don't judge. Extra points of u chat with the roller blading electric guitar guy.

Always a fun time in Venice. During the day you'll find lots of beautiful people and crazy characters intermingled, while at night it's dominated by the friendly homeless locals. I've never felt unsafe in Venice Beach despite the number of vagrants in the area. It's basically a required visit for tourists and a great hangout for LA locals.

Good for people watching. Lots of stores selling tat and weed. Best leave before sunset or the atmosphere gets very dodgy.
