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

Zumba beach is worth the drive. Sandy and sunny, like all the beaches, but not crowded. Real showers and toilets too.

I liked the beauty of the beach and the abundant parking. The view of the ocean and horizon is inspiring. It was a great place to walk around and be at peace. The lifeguards were helpful to me when I asked them questions and the help they gave me was very much appreciated. The people working in the parking lot... More

We went on a Sunday morning around 9am and it was almost empty. It was gorgeous and relaxing. We were able to park on the street right in front of the beach - plenty of parking! The waves were beautiful and there were a couple surfers so it was fun to watch them. This definitely beats Malibu Lagoon which IMO... More

Visited in mid-January. Pristine beach was barely dotted with people. Tip: Don't pay the $6 entry-fee to park in the lot. Loads of free parking along PCH and the walk is easy. Eateries not open during winter so bring food. Some construction going on at facilities but there are porta-potties.
