If your kids cannot stand still, take them to Hawa Hawa, the dune-shaped inflatable playground. There’s one of these in Japan; La Mer has the second. There are two dunes and seven peaks, all made out of a tensile membrane that allows you to bounce on it. It’s an activity that’s fun for kids and adults. There’s a weight limit though – you cannot be over 99 kgs to enjoy bouncing at Hawa Hawa.

If you’re craving spicy Indian with a twist, head over to MASTI, which means ‘mischief’ in Hindi. Try the quirk items on offer – paneer lasagne, butter chicken pizza – it’s fun all the way at this cool lounge and bar. Feel like hammering some seafood and extracting the delectable within? You can do so at Aprons & Hammers, a seafood restaurant where you order a bucket of shellfish, put on an apron and get smashing. With 50 places to eat, you’ll be spoilt for choice at La Mer.

La Mer- A Shopper’s Beachfront Haven

La Mer wouldn’t be perfect if there was no place to shop! However, this perfect beachfront haven has a treasure trove of high street brand stores, cozy boutiques, and other concept stores. If you’re looking for stylish kaftans and swimwear, check out Hamac. You can also pick up a cool inflatable here, something shaped like a fruit perhaps? And, for women, there’s a Sephora outlet here – just in case someone forgot to pack their makeup pouch.

Don’t miss a visit to the Beach Bunny, the international sensation when it comes to embellished bikinis. Like your bling? Then check out the bikinis here studded with lace, jewels, and other chunky adornments. Pick up some matching eye-wear and some top-notch tanning products. If you like trendy streetwear, head to LA Rags, a Southern California brand. For those that love their unisex clothing, Via Rodeo is a top-notch boutique filled with edgy LA fashion, by independent designers.

La Mer – An Art-lover’s Delight

If you love art, then you’ll never want to leave La Mer. The walls here are covered with inspired graffiti and humorous murals that are a treat to see. The images range from camels walking in the desert to multi-colored candy, too funny faces and much more. The artwork is vibrant, contemporary, minimalist and perfect for a sea-facing neighborhood. Speaking of deliberate contemporary art, do check out The Wharf while you’re there. Here you’ll find an overwhelming amount of steel items, wooden barrels, broken trucks and worn-out drums, arranged in a randomly-artistic way. The Wharf looks as though it’s something from the future, and totally accidental and a bit out of place in such a cool place, but it works somehow.


La Mer is a public beach neighborhood; that means you don’t pay the entry fee to enjoy it. Independent attractions such as Laguna Water Park and Hawa Hawa do charge a nominal fee though. It’s best to visit La Mer during the winter, from October to February. You can spend all your time exploring the many delights at La Mer without worrying about boiling in the heat.
