Really enjoyed our visit to this rocky shore. The bluffs offer a great view and picnic space. (sparse facilities, not really a bathing beach anyway). A short but steep hike down to the water's edge offer a beautiful walk up and down this little slice of remoteness. Large rocks and shoals can be seen as the tide goes out. (I imagine tidepools would have been seen had we been there during lower tide). A beautiful spot with birds above, crashing waves and hollowed little dugouts from the tide. The beach was full of wedding photos, engagement photos and baby announcement visitors taking pictures but there was plenty of room to walk along and take everything in.

Must Do!!! The drive is worth it, the horrible parking is worth it and the view you will never forget!!! There are picnic tables at the top you can view the cliffs and people down below. There are steps down and areas that you can stop and breathe if you aren’t the most athletic. View from the bottom is amazing too. If you see a sunset it’s beautiful and then once the parking lot closes at sunset drive to the left and then right up the hill and find another lookout point where the sunset will take you’re breath away. See all my pics to see what I’m talking about.

We stopped for an hour before dinner based on other reviews. $3 per hour parking or $10 for the day. Not very much parking. Loved the views with the rock formations, must be a wedding picture spot as two brides/grooms were there taking pictures. It is a few steps to get down to the beach and in two spots there were steps.

I love coming here to feel the crisp wind in my hair <3 It was a little less crowded back in the day but still a good spot.

This may be the most extraordinary beach in Malibu. The rock formations on the shore give the beach the look of some parts of Cabo or Barbados.
