We had the beach to ourselves and got to park for free on the PCH in January. Such a pretty beach - goes on forever in both directions.

This was a beautiful clean beach. We really enjoyed it. I wish parking (non-street) was cheaper. Otherwise, perfect!!

We highly recommend this beautiful beach. It is clean and has ample parking for great beach days. The parking is close to the beach. There are multiple bathrooms and showers available. Stick around for gorgeous sunsets.

An ok Beach i guess, but not a patch on other beaches around the world. A few good restaurants and some parking make it a bit easier. Gets very busy in summer.

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
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.
