Our Private Tour Guests Enjoy a Peaceful
Sunset Moment at the Beach
Most people want to get to our grand Los Angeles beaches early in the day or at least when the sun is high and warm and the ocean is inviting. There are, however, some of us who like to be there at the end of the day when the sun is setting, the beach crowds are thinning and the campfires are lit. The beach seems quiet and peaceful and a fire pit beckons us to enjoy the last light of the day. From Malibu down to Torrance there are places on the beach and at the edge where flames dance in the growing darkness and Los Angeles nightlife can begin. On a private Los Angeles tour this means we can begin to enjoy the colorful neon of businesses along the Sunset Strip and the magnificent landscape lighting of celebrity homes in Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Sightseeing after dark is as much fun and as interesting as during the day.
Los Angeles Beaches are Wide Open Again after a Busy Summer
Despite the recent heat wave most of the summer crowds have dispersed from the wide open Los Angeles beaches in Venice and Santa Monica and even up to Malibu. Local surfers are still enjoying hurricane fueled waves arriving from Mexico but our tour guests staying in the great beach hotels (Shutters, Loews, Casa del Mar) have the beaches mostly to themselves. The bike/skate path snakes for miles from Venice Beach to Pacific Palisades and a bike route can be ridden all the way down to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Most of the often colorfully painted lifeguard shelters are shuttered now even though the Pacific waters are as warm as they are going to get this year. This is a wonderful time to plan a visit and enjoy a private Los Angeles tour while you are here.
Southern California surfing culture is all around Los Angeles and has been here since the sport first arrived on the mainland. Just listen to any Beach Boys song to hear about our local beaches and surfing point breaks. We were walking with a family on a luxury private tour of our local beaches and beach cities (Marina del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu) and the kids were enthralled by the surfers. Now that school is back in session the beaches are quiet and you can capture photos like this.
