Hotels On the Beach is your guide to beach hotels and beach resorts in Santa Monica. The hotels that are on the beach are verry upscale, and fabulous.You get the best rates for these hotels on the beach, and other hotels that are near the beach. Santa Monica has a great promenade that is alive with street entertainers, and sidewalk dining. The promenade is just a short walk from the beach. The pier is famous, and has a ferris wheel. You'll find a great boardwalk (concrete), that takes you along famous Venice Beach where you'll see lots of interesting people. A short drive north is Malibu, home to the stars.

Everything about Santa Monica sizzles, from hundreds of funky shops and restaurants to more than three miles of white sand beach to the multitude of celebrities zipping into the local airport and out on Montana Avenue. The subject of popular songs, movies and television shows ("Baywatch" was one of many filmed here), the city has a vibe like no other. Hollywood haute couture meets surfer chic meets hippie casual, and somehow it all works. A word of advice: ditch the car and walk everywhere. Santa Monica is small and prides itself on being pedestrian- and environmentally friendly. You won't need wheels at the auto-free Third Street Promenade, a stroller's paradise known for its multitude of movie theaters, restaurants and animated street performers. Or at the famous and historic Santa Monica Pier, home to savory smells from fast food stalls and the solar powered, nine-story high Ferris wheel that has long been a symbol of the city. If your feet start to fail, hop on the electric powered Tide Shuttle, a bus service that runs along the beach offering great views plus a ride to the artsy Bergamot Station and the Santa Monica Museum of Art, or your next spirited Santa Monica destination.
