It was a bit of a walk from the parking lot, but once you got onto the beach it was beautiful. Nice views of the houses on Malibu Beach, people surfing, seals swimming and laying on the rocks, a lifeguard is on duty.

I love going to the beach, and love this short stretch of beach. I find parking every time in the lot, 8 dollars a day/takes credit cards. Walking to beach is not overwhelming and for me that makes such a big difference when carrying stuff...More

Very nice view and walk. Nice place to see birds and surfers. Parking is $3 for an hour. Overall, we enjoyed it. Consider spending about 1 hour max.

The Malibu Lagoon is such a cool location with the water sanctuary right there. The beach itself is really nice. And its close to where the surfers are - so its fun for surf watching.
