HOLIDAYS TO SANTA MONICA, LA

With 310 days of sunshine annually, miles of golden sands, a pounding surf why wouldn’t you choose Santa Monica for your luxury holiday? Not to mention the hiking trails of the Santa Monica mountains. Santa Monica was always destined to become the palm-fringed playground of choice for sporty starlets, bodybuilders, dancers and performers. As the beach closest to Hollywood, it was a popular resort town by the early 20th century, and today this beach-fringed suburb will offer you a distinctly more carefree, laidback and typically Californian holiday than the hotels downtown or in Hollywood.

Why Turquosie Holidays Loves Santa Monica

"Visiting Santa Monica is a must on any California holiday. This beautiful city by the ocean is a world away from the glitz of Hollywood, with a fun, cosmopolitan vibe all of its own. Grab a bike, cycle along the endless beach path and you’ll soon feel like a local!" - Suzy, California Product Manager

VISTING SANTA MONICA

If Santa Monica has a mantra, it’s that you have your cake and eat it - just as long as it’s made with agave and raw cacao. During the 1970s Jane Fonda opened her aerobics studio on Main Street, future Olympian Carl Lewis trained at the Santa Monica Track Club and Arnold Schwarzenegger pumped iron at the weight-lifting mecca Gold’s Gym. Today be sure to visit the legendary twice-weekly street market and pioneering juice bar scene, a free community bike scheme and miles of boardwalk to stroll, skate or bike, Santa Monica still makes it ridiculously easy to tap into the good life.
