In addition to palm trees and the entertainment industry, the beaches are what Los Angeles is known for! While you can technically have a beach day any time of the year, things get really heated during the summer, and we mean that in the best way possible. While your VIDA Studio City apartments for rent aren’t along the shore, they are just a quick drive away. That said, here are our favorite Los Angeles beaches.

The Best Los Angeles Beaches

El Matador State Beach

Our dazzling views of the ocean begin at El Matador State Beach. This spot is just a drive away from your apartments for rent in Studio City. It sits between Leo Carrillo State Beach and Point Dume State Beach in Malibu and is a photographer’s dreamland. If you are looking for the perfect beach, El Matador is it. In addition to the waves, there are beautiful rock formations, caves, and hidden coves. 

Surfrider Beach

For all of our surfers at VIDA apartments for rent in Studio City, you’ll want to visit Malibu Surfrider Beach. Unlike the other beaches in LA, Surfrider guarantees the perfect waves for surfing.

Santa Monica Beach

We would be doing this blog post an injustice if we did not include Santa Monica Beach, just a quick drive from your Studio City apartments for rent in Los Angeles. When you are looking for an all-day beach day with friends, we would suggest Santa Monica. While it draws a big crowd during the summer, you will always find a spot to park your chairs and umbrellas and even play a round of volleyball.

Venice Beach

Another lively option for a full beach day is Venice Beach. You can have a good surf here but what brings people back to Venice Beach are all the characters. That includes musicians, breakdancers, palm readers, and of course, bodybuilders.

Surfing, people watching, a round of volleyball, and romantic sunsets, our LA beaches all have something to offer. Have fun and stay tuned for more summer fun on our Instagram
