I loved that the beach was a lot cleaner than other beaches closer to home. This one was quite a drive from San Gabriel Valley but it was worth the drive. The water was cleaner and parking was not as crowded as Santa Monica is. Overall it was a great experience.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing beach then this is your place. A simply stunning place my kids loved this beach. Lots for kids to view ocean life at it's finest.

Very peaceful and quiet and clean. I came here on a wednesday morning in march on an overcast cloudy day tho. The drive there was very pretty lots of green mountains. The only reason why i wouldnt give it 5 stars is because i like to have the option to grab lunch by the beach or ice cream. It definately... More

Zuma Beach is one of the nicest beaches I've ever been too. The sand is so soft and the sea is lovely too, Its also very clean and patrolled by lifeguards along the beach. Some days you can get most of the beach to yourself. Its great to just relax and watch the cool surfers ride the waves.you may even... More

I love Zuma Beach. It is a long stretch of light colored soft sand with ample parking if you get there early. There is a boardwalk which you can walk/bike/jog on. The snack bar is adequate. There are things like peanut butter and jelly and hot dogs, which are quick and easy to eat plus other things from the grill.... More

When the weather is warm, we walk on the concrete sidewalk and the beach. My daughter likes to practice her rock climbing skills and you can walk from the beach up to Point Dume. We usually go in the morning or early evening which is pre or post crowds. The only thing we don't like is that people leave their... More

Great beach to go when beaches are not on the agenda of everyone in LA. Fall winter and spring, this beach is fantastic....good fishing as well. As soon a summer hits it's mayhem and chaos....not my idea of fun on any level however if your insecure and need to be surrounded by people in order to feel cool then you... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
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 with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
