Not far from downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica is one of the most famous beaches in the whole of Southern California and it is not difficult to see why. Santa Monica beach spans more than 3.5 miles of coastline and is a tourist favourite because of its impeccable water, soft sands, and proximity to many popular tourist attractions. Due to its length, the beach has been separated into North and South by a pier located halfway down the shoreline.
