Great place 24/7, always clean, secure and easy access. Surrounded by luxury houses, restaurants. Safeguard, facilities to show, dress change. Excellent sand which is clean. Modest waves and comfortable temperature around of the year makes it excellent to recharge batteries and enjoy Ocean.

Although only stopping here to relax for a while, I really enjoyed this beach on such a warm mid day of September. People were happy, friendly and even offered to take my pictures. Teleport it to London please, including the weather.

Beautiful beach that remained clean and friendly. Easy walk from our accommodations at Malibu Country Inn.

It was great to experience the nice waves and cold water on the West Coast. The Zumba beach offers a great sunset as well.

Great beach with a parking lot if the coast highway is full. This beach is about a half mile of space, which, fills up during the summer time! During the morning, the lifeguards allow surfing. When the lifeguards hang the yellow flag with a black...More

We did not stay very long, there is hardly any beach to be on. The waves are huge, and did not look safe to swim in. Bring your own food, as the food booth that is there has a woman working it who does not...More

Not a pristine beach. Lots of parking, rest rooms, and volley ball nets. Perhaps the last place I would go to contemplate the waves and watch the sunset. Great for children and young families.

Wasn't impressed with this beach. $8 parking and a very long walk to the water. Extremely windy the day we went. The water was freezing. Ended up leaving and going to El Matador which was much better.

Pretty beach with good facilities. So crowded you can hardly find space though. I'd recommend finding a less crowded beach if possible.

The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some
areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted

No. You can walk your dog along the road and through the parking lot all the way to Point Dume, but you cannot go on the sand or walk along the shoreline with your doggies. The only dog friendly beach up there is Oxnard... More
