This section of the bike trail is a lot quieter with less bike traffic than closer to Venice Beach. It was peaceful and scenic. Easy, flat and wide paved bike trail. Enjoyed it a lot!

To see the beaches from Venice to Malibu hiring bikes is a must. The tracks are wide and well organised and the bikes will cost about $20 per day. well worth it.

We loved this beach bike trail and how it just winds through Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Marina Del Ray. We drove for about 5 miles down and 5 miles back were easy to do. Lots of good sites to see people, places and things.
