Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Los Angeles

Zuma Beach
A surfer's paradise Zuma Beach's pristine water sands and regular swells make for a great day out indeed.
Venice Beach
Steroid-pumped hunk trunks and silicon-filled beach babes flock to Venice Beach where thin is in and fitness is everything.
The Stairs
The Beach Cities
Living on the beach nurtures a carefree attitude among residents which is why the beach cities - Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo - are happy places indeed. Flip-flops at the ready.
Surfrider Beach
Serious surfers are drawn to the good swells around Surfrider Beach just off Malibu Pier, with its picturesque location and legendary right break...
Surf Academy
Nobody likes to wipe out which is why Surf Academy is a must when thinking of taking to the waters to impress bikini-clad girls.
Starline Tours
Renowned operator Starline Tours takes celeb-lovers to the homes of the rich and famous and now beyond.
Staples Center
Like the gates of heaven for sports fiends and fans alike the Staples Center is also a great place to spot a-listers in the crowds that congregate here.
Solstice Canyon
Be sure to take your camera with you to Solstice Canyon which offers more superb scenery than you could ever imagine.
Silent Movie Theatre
Devoted to reinvigorating the movie-going experience, the owners of the Silent Movie Theatre believe that movies work best as social experiences. Get involved and pay a visit to this quirky cinema.
Segway Los Angeles
It may look a little daft whizzing about on a Segway but it's an ideal way to comb the city without having to actually move your legs.
Santa Monica Surf School
Surf's up! So grab your board and head down to Santa Monica where there's plenty of swell and the Santa Monica Surf School to get you started.
Santa Monica Beach
Like something straight out of Baywatch this is LA's signature stretch of sand; expect bronzed bodies lifeguard posts and more sexy scenery than you can shake a very large stick at.
Runyon Canyon
If views are your thing a ramble along Runyon Canyon is an incredible way to see the city - from all kinds of awe-inspiring angles.
Perry’s
Perry's is something of an institution on LA sands; offering bikes and burgers in equal measures (not at the same time mind) this is the perfect place to get some exercise and refuel in suitable calorific fashion afterwards.
Learn to Surf LA
Surfing and LA go together like a horse and carriage which is why Learn to Surf LA - one of the best surf schools in the city - is a must for those serious about the surf.
Inspiration Point Loop
They don't call it Inspiration Point Loop for nothing; this trail offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the area from lush greenery to ocean vistas.
Huntington Beach
Like something straight off a postcard Huntington Beach offers the kind of orange-hued dreamscape that would make anyone want to pack up and move to LA. Sun sand surf and so many damn sexy people.
Honda Center
No it's not a car showroom - it's an indoor arena for the almighty Anaheim Ducks ice hockey's much-beloved team.
Esotouric Bus Adventures
Don't get put off by the idea of a bus tour, when Esotouric takes you on a tour of LA's most hidden treasures it's got to be worth it. And it is ten-fold.
El Capitan
For a piece of that old movie palace glamour, take a look inside El Captain, one of the few left of its kind.
Dodger Stadium
Baseball is huge here in Los Angeles and there's no better place to watch it than at Dodger Stadium - home to the almighty Dodgers. Go wild in the crowds.
Black’s Beach
Most of us prefer to cover up on the beach but some prefer to sprawl on the sand and frolic in the surf without so much as a stitch. And for those there's Black Beach.
Barrington Recreation Center
A great place to come and play Barrington Park Recreation Center offerings everything from competitive sports right through to picnic tables. Personally we pref
Angel Stadium
Heaven must be missing an angel - a few of them in fact - but luckily we've found them; they're here at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim home to the minor-league Angels. Grab a hot dog a foam finger and enjoy.
An Ode to Santa Monica Pier
Santa Monica Pier is the old-school focal point of the whole Santa Monica community and the tourists who troop along the boardwalk
Abalone Cove
Natural beauty awaits at Abalone Cove where skinny-dippers and fishermen alike come to explore the tidepools.
