Living in Los Angeles can be quite a luxury, especially at VIDA Studio City apartments. You’ve got adorable cafes just a walk away, you’re surrounded by the arts, and finding breathtaking places to watch the sun go down is easy. We’ve chatted about Los Angeles views before, but we’ve never talked about where you can find the best beach sunsets in Los Angeles. That said, let’s dive in (pun intended).

The Best Beach Sunsets in Los Angeles

The Santa Monica Pier

Our first sunset beach location is just a short drive away from your Studio City apartments. It is the one and only Santa Monica Beach Pier! You will find the pier at the end of Route 66, and there are actually two adjoining piers for you to choose from. No matter which one you choose, you will gaze upon a gorgeous beach sunset along with their iconic Ferris wheel on one of the piers. Fun fact, the pier with the Ferris wheel has a different light show on it every night. 

Terranea Bluff Top Park

This next spot on our list is the furthest out from your apartments in Studio City for rent. It is about an hour’s drive away, but we had to include it because, just like the sea caves at El Matador Beach, Terranea Bluff Top Park includes a view of something very unique. A lighthouse! In particular, the Point Vicente Lighthouse.

Manhattan Beach Pier

Piers and beaches come hand in hand. In addition to Santa Monica, one of our other favorite beach piers is Manhattan Beach. Surfers and photographers alike are fond of this beach sunset spot, and we think you will be too. The pier and sky are always picturesque, with or without clouds.

Point Dume State Beach 

Last but certainly not least, we have Point Dume State Beach in Malibu. If you want unobstructed views of the sunset from any direction, this is the spot. One unique feature about Point Dume is that it is a bluff-lined point, and the views expand out into the Pacific Ocean. If you are going down for photos, the views from the Northwest has excellent shots of Zuma Beach. If you are lucky, you may find some dolphins playing in the water.
