The bike path that straddles the beach from Pacific Palisades through Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach, ending in Torrance is also known as The Strand and Marvin Braude Bike Trail. The path is a virtually flat, paved, 22 mile long breezy pedal along the beach, with a circuitous route around the bay and flood channel bordering Marina del Rey and Playa del Rey. At the channel it connects with the Ballona Creek bike path, which terminates in Culver City.
Stunning visuals of the beach and ocean, combined with the scent of cleaner air, make for an invigorating ride. Have plenty of water and some snacks in tow; if you forget to bring, there are dozens of stores and cafes along the route. See more beach activities here
