Santa Monica beach hotelsI hit Santa Monica with my one and only Tinder date – a tall, dark and handsome man, who it turned out was an actor living in Hollywood. Fast forward a couple of months from our first date in Oz and we’re cruising LA en route to Santa Monica. It’s a city where your creme de la creme celebrities are photographed just chillin’ and also one popular for film sets.

After a cruisey hour drive from Hollywood with, let’s call him Tinder, our first stop is the iconic and breathtaking Santa Monica Beach. The city has 5.6km of well-maintained beach locations, so it’s obvious why National Geographic ranked it as one of the world’s “Top Ten Beach Cities.”
