A bay bordered by a crescent-shaped shore between Malibu and Los Angeles, the mainland of Santa Monica Bay is lined with high-end property. Many piers and docks offer fishing and parking for private vessels. Some of the larger piers, such as Santa Monica Pier and Marina Del Rey, are full of entertainment, shopping, and restaurants. A fishing or boat tour helps you appreciate the California coast. Adrenaline-pumping water activities are also available.

Santa Monica Bay Reviews
Me encanto visitar un lugar que sale en el juego de gta y poder verlo en la realidad. Lo recomiendo. more »I loved visiting a place that comes out in the gta game and to be able to see it in reality. I recommend it.
Luego de la locura visual que es Venice beach esta playa es un bálsamo para recorrer tranquilo junto al mar, ojo que noviembre es temporada baja, no sabria decir como es en pleno verano. more »After the visual madness that is Venice beach this beach is a balm to roam peacefully by the sea, eye that November is low season, I would not know as it is in the middle of summer.
