This is a very good place to relax with family or friends. Very clean and beautiful beach nice drive. Don't park in the parking lot and pay parking but you can find parking on the side of road. Plenty of parking.

Zuma is such a lovely beach! We walked the strip and even met a celeb! Although October is not really the time to go bare, I had to walk the beach in my bare feet!

Right off the Pacific Coast Hwy, a great cove beach for all ages. Good for volleyballers, surfers, and kids with parents.

It was very nice and quite. Way less crowded than Santa Monica but it is less garnished like it doesn't have a bike trail or beach benches. I want in April and it was still too cold to swim

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

They don't advertise any tours to people who live here. The only one I see is Star Tours, which is an open top van that I think is showing people the homes of the rich and famous, from the street. The homes look a lot lot... More
