The beach is beautifully situated surrounded by gorgeous California hills. The expansive sandy beach is ideal for long walks or jogs. The beach is clean and well taken care of. Super spot to spend a day and all for only $8.00!

Spent a day here with my family. The beach was well maintained, clean, and with dedicated lifeguards who guarded the swimmers actively with special attention to the heavy rip currents. To our satisfaction, we registered that the no admittance for animals and the smoking ban...More

Great beach with good surf. Dolphins and whales pass close depending on the time of year. Gets crowded quickly in the summer. Must come early if you want to get free parking. Has public restrooms. Volleyball nets etc. no beachside bars

We decided to go here after Universal Studios, and it was very fun for the kids as they got to ride the sand mobiles. It was something the kids haven’t done before and they had lots of fun doing today.

Less crowded than others at least when we were there. Good amount of free parking and bathroom facilities nearby. It was a great beach to walk on after hiking Point Dume.

Beach is large enough to have a lot of visitors without seeming crowded. Very soft and clean sand. Ample parking but be prepared to hand over the $15 to park.

This is one of the most beautiful, pristine, accessible, non-rocky public beaches in Malibu and all of California. With 2.5 miles of open sand and waves, this is iconic Malibu at its best. This beach is fantastic for spotting whales, dolphins, pelicans (especially diving for...More

We took the time to drive up the cost from LA. Well worth the trip. The beach was quite. The Sunset was beautiful. We saw seals swimming with the surfers. Best experience on the trip.

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
