The Beach House has a new reservation system! 

Reservations are never required to visit the Beach House, but are available for some site amenities to make your visit more enjoyable. 

Some summer reservations, like parking and pool admission, are in high demand on popular beach days, and reservations may sell out quickly for those days. Walk-up use on a first come first served basis is always an alternative to making reservations. Please see below for details.

Please create a Reserve Santa Monica account to get started.
(If you previously had a RecEnroll account, login with the same ID and password.)
