Today I have a travel guest post from Robert Hall about the top 10 beautiful beaches in Los Angeles. Enjoy!


If a traveler is a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program participating country, it is required to acquire an Electronic System for Travel Authorization, or ESTA Visa. Essentially, it is an online version of the I-94 form. Hence, it is not really a visa. To acquire the visa, one must simply go online and fill out the ESTA Visa Application.

Canadian citizens can enter the United States under a separate visa waiver program without the need for ESTA.
With ESTA US Visas, travelers can explore the top 10 beautiful beaches in Los Angeles, not necessarily the tourist-heavy, popular beaches including Santa Monica Beach, along Los Angeles’ coastline.

1. Venice Beach

  • Sometimes, beauty is the combination of nature and people
  • One thing in common with Venice, Italy, is an area with a canal
  • Town residents have eccentric and unique character
  • The sandy beach is just a backdrop for the interesting atmosphere filled with somewhat bizarre people
  • Crowded on weekends with little parking space

2. El Matador Beach

  • With that ESTA US Visa, a person can stroll romantically with their American lover
  • Small coves along rocky edges
  • Very scenic for couples, swimmers, body boarding, and bodysurfing
  • Crowded during summer and beach is small

3. Malibu Beach

  • Great for surfing and beach volleyball in Surf rider Beach
  • For nature enthusiasts, there are various tide pools in the lagoon
  • Not too sandy

4. Paradise Cove

  • A private beach, so payment is required to enter
