The ocean  is the thing that makes Venice Beach  the most special place on earth.  This three-mile beach is manicured daily and the lifeguards are on duty, so grab a towel and head down to the sand. Marvel at the planet’s largest ocean or meditate into your own universe, either way the beach has the perfect spot for everyone.  See you out there!

Here is a message from Beaches and Harbors Los Angeles County.

Here’s what you need to know:


  • Individual or family ocean activities (such as surfing, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and body surfing)
  • Individual or family active recreation & exercise (such as walking, running and using the beach bike path)
