Great hidden camping area with beautiful beach across the street to walk to. Kids love the sea urchins and other sea creatures in the tide pools. Surfing also available.
North of lifeguard house tower 3 is the dog friendly part. We absolutely love it there as the beach is not overly crowded. Dogs are overall very well behaved. Great place to spend a few hours or a day there... Bring some food for a picnic, some beach chairs, umbrella and you're all set! Access to the beach is free... More
On the side of the Pacific Highway short of Neptune's Net past Pepperdine. Nice place to climb a rock and sit and walk the beach. Many fond memories now that I live in Mississippi. Take advantage you lucky California folk.

It is now a California State Park that is a Surfing and Windsurfing paradise, but be careful of the rocks. If... More
Just took a hike on a beautiful new trail rebuilt by the State Parks. High above the mansions of Malibu at the end of Decker School Road is the trailhead for this wonderful half-mile hike to Nicholas Pond. At the end there is a great vista overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Decker Canyon.

With a little bit of climbing around, you can find interesting creatures like starfish and others that I couldn't identify! Even though... More

One of the many nice things about this park is it's close location to Los Angeles. About 28 miles up PCH(Pacific Coast Highway). The camp site: The camp site can handle the smallest tent to... More
All the beaches in Malibu were beautiful and each different from the other. California was a great place to visit with my little dog as most areas are pet friendly. Loved our stay here and enjoyed all the beaches and landscape!
A very rocky beach but interesting sea life at low tide. Due to the rocks and configuration of the landscape there are tidal pools that are fun to explore especially, young children.
