Sand. Waves. Beach…And gymnastics! Yes! The Original Muscle Beach, just south of Santa Monica Pier, has a ton of equipment available for free for all to use. People come together to have fun and get exercise at the same time. There’s definitely a beautiful community feel to this place. I love spending time in nature and this is an awesome perk.
Watch others show off their talents on the rings, beams, bars, and ropes and give it a go yourself! You might be stronger than you think. 🙂 Play, people watch, or get a tan. You can also rent bikes, walk, and take a stroll. The last time I was there, I easily spent the entire day at the beach. If you are there on a Sunday, you can even check out the acro yoga community on the grass area from late noon to sundown. Free entertainment, exercise, and nature…who could ask for a better day?
Bonus: there’s also a kids area.
