Staying active when you're on vacation can be a challenge. But there's no better place for healthy living than Manhattan Beach. Around here, it's easy to find ways to get your body moving.

Explore the city on foot.

Sometimes, the best way to get to know a city is on your own two feet. All you need is some sunscreen, your running shoes, and a hunger for adventure. Take a stroll beachside and enjoy the natural beauty, or beat your best mile time at Veteran's Parkway. Just remember to take a peek at the weather report before you head out to discover Manhattan Beach.

Hit the waves.

Southern California is a surfer's dream with numerous beaches and incredible waves. Take in the sun and surf for a full body workout that will keep you on your toes. No surfboard? No problem. Nikau Kai Waterman Shop has you covered for surfboard rentals, paddle board rentals, and more.

Say "Namaste" on the Beach

Rise with the sun, grab your mat, and refresh your soul. Take in the sound of the ocean waves behind you while you're in downward dog. You can head to the beach to do some yoga on your own, or join in on an eco-friendly class at The Green Yogi. This July, you can even bring a friend to the Manhattan Beach Pier for Mindful Yoga during the summer Free Fitness Series!

Try out a fitness class

If hitting PR's and sweating it out is more your style, then visit any one of the local gyms, fitness clubs, and studios around Manhattan Beach. You can try out a cutting edge approach to circuit training and recovery at S-Club Fitness. Feel free to tone your body and take pilates at CoeDynamics. If you prefer a more one on one approach, Ocean Fitness offers personal training to fit your schedule.

Rest and Recover 

The most crucial part of an active lifestyle is the recovery, so rest your head at the Sea View Inn for the night. You'll be ready to wake up the next morning, make a cup of French roast coffee, and hop on one of the inn's bicycles to head out on your next active adventure.
