This beach is very clean, has showers, changing rooms, and ample parking. I took my family there and it was a positive experience. If you are looking for a place to relax I highly recommend Zuma.

Beautiful beach to sit and relax.. I am not a surfer though I believe this beach would be loved by surfers. Calm and peaceful.. Would visit again when I get an opportunity..

This is the place if you want the Beach Scene plus the amenities. More people than at Dume, but not too many because parking is limited. Good thing. Perfect for families where you need adjacent bathrooms and food. Hang out & enjoy.

I love Zuma beach. Always come here throughout the year with friends or girlfriends. Its more secluded than santa monica beach and i love the vibe and the restaurant that is here. Definitely a must if you're visiting malibu.

Beautiful view in each direction that you look. My favorite is looking south at the big rock coming out at Point Dume. Easy, affordable, safe parking. Tons of bathrooms.

This is a great beach, not far from LA and Santa Monica traveling north on the Pacific Coast Highway. The beach features lots of sand, great surf, and beautiful views of the Santa Monica Mountains. The surf is usually more than adequate for surfing, body boarding, body surfing, and skim boarding. You need to keep an eye on children. There... More

A nice beach that gets a bit crowded but has food and amenities, and all things considered it's just fine for all.

View is breathtaking. Cleanest beach I have ever been to in the U.S. Need to be there early for garage Parking- or you will have to do the meter or park on the sidewalk. Bathrooms with showers available and Food Court in the middle of the beach with fairly good pricing.

Awesome surfs and a nice clean beach. Lots of police around so be sure to park properly. The waves are nice to surf and have fun.

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.
