California Coastal Living

L.A. Beach Cities

The Beaches of West L.A.

Living near a stunning L.A. beach city shoreline is one of the greatest luxuries in the world. From morning walks along the water’s edge in Santa Monica, to watching the sun sink below a spectacular horizon at dusk in Marina del Rey; the average year-round temperature here is 70 degrees. Flip flops are a must have, typically worn year-long.

Enjoying a cocktail at Venice Beach’s High Rooftop Lounge is a must. Fall in love with the small-town vibe of Manhattan Beach. The storied Santa Monica Pier is home to an iconic Ferris wheel, seafood restaurants, and Coney Island-style amusement park rides.

And a little further north, stretching for more than 30 miles along the Pacific and Highway One, Malibu offers beachfront homes and front-row seats for surfing and showstopping sunsets. Meanwhile, those living at L.A.’s Playa Vista are a short bike ride from the marina, where stand-up paddleboarding affords sweeping views of Marina del Rey, gliding peacefully past yachts and sea lions. This is California coastal living: immaculate, palm-lined streets, stony cliffs and winding hiking trails. And perched on hillsides, sprawling homes overlook the great Pacific.
