BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Muscle Beach is part of Venice Beach but it's definitely got its own history and panache. If you're a workout fanatic, or like to watch workout fanatics, this is your beach.
  • The array of equipment is impressive—pull-up bars of varying levels, parallel bars, rings, a gymnastics area, even jungle gyms for kids (who may not know they're working out).
  • Muscle Beach has been attracting the muscle-bound and Hollywood elite since the 1930s—Clark Gable, Mae West, and Kirk Douglas all came here. Stop and read the interpretive sign for the full history.
