Recreation & Entertainment
Q: How safe is the swimming (sking) at the beach (mountain)?
A: Safe, here is some information from the Visitor’s bureau about the beach: Santa Monica has 3.5 miles (5.6 km) of well-maintained California beach locations and enjoys on average 340 days of sunshine a year plus a nearly constant gentle ocean breeze. Cycling, movie shoots, beach volleyball games, and the finest of people-watching all happen here, and it's no wonder.
People love to gather at this California beach, partially because it is so pristine.Santa Monica Beach in particular is a natural asset that we take great care to preserve; the city of Santa Monica cleans and rakes the sand daily, and even offers a “trash valet” service on Fridays, weekends and holidays. Lifeguard stations are staffed during all daylight hours – though the lifeguard headquarters provides 24-hour assistance year-round.
