Santa Monica
45 miles from the Disneyland ® Resort
Discover 3 1/2 miles of sun-washed sand seen in countless movies and TV shows. Enjoy a stroll along Ocean Front.

For many the single greatest reason to visit Santa Monica is to enjoy the ultimate Southern California beach .

Santa Monica has 3.5 miles (5.6 km) of well-maintained California beach locations and enjoys on average 340 days of sunshine a year plus a nearly constant gentle ocean breeze. Cycling, movie shoots, beach volleyball games, and the finest of people-watching all happen here, and it's no wonder. People love to gather at this California beach , partially because it is so pristine.

Santa Monica Beach in particular is a natural asset that we take great care to preserve; the city of Santa Monica cleans and rakes the sand daily, and even offers a “trash valet” service on Fridays, weekends and holidays. Lifeguard stations are staffed during all daylight hours – though the lifeguard headquarters provides 24-hour assistance year-round.

Santa Monica beach is full of activities year–round, including:
  • Swimming
  • Surfing
  • Fishing
  • Volleyball
  • Biking
