Though Santa Monica is known for its beaches, piers, and boardwalks, those looking to take a break from the tourist traps should try one of the many parks along the coastline. Our recommendation is Palisades Park, conveniently located less than ten minutes from The Oceana Bech Club Hotel. 

A lovely walk on these famous Southern California bluffs will offer you views of the Santa Monica Pier, Malibu Point off to the north, and Palos Verdes down to the south. The coastline below provides the perfect setting for any jog, yoga class, or picnic. Commonly compared to Nice, France by international travelers, Palisades Park is the perfect place to exercise or relax, and will give you the most unique setting to get a true view of everything the Pacific coastline has to offer its visitors. 

If you need something specific to set your mind to while visiting the park, bring your yoga mat and breathe your way through your favorite poses. The payoff of the shavasana pose, feels extra special in this park, when the breeze floats down through the swaying palm trees to congratulate you on a great workout. 

However, the most brilliant views arrive with the California sunset. Consider bringing your significant other to the bluffs for a picnic. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a cool sandwich and some fruit, or try one of the local food trucks nearby, which offer diverse menus from Mexican fare to healthy juices and smoothies. Pick a spot and take in the unrivaled, clear vision of the sun setting right into the Pacific Ocean. 

After your dinner, head back to the Oceana Beach Club and enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool, or consider hunkering down in your pajamas to end your day at the park with your favorite film.
