Zuma Beach, Malibu: Address, Zuma Beach Reviews: 4.5/5

Top ways to experience Zuma Beach
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Zuma Beach oil globs
Jul 2021
Beautiful beach. But I stay by the #5 or 6 lifeguard stations up towards the #10 or more at west end of Zuma beach. If I walk by the water from #1 to #5 I usually get oil globs on my feet or shoes. Messy to get off. Don’t know why it’s different in those areas that close together.
You can park on the highway for free. Usually some spots open. If not then you can go into the paid parking area.

A Walk in the Pacific!
Jan 2020
Our visit here on our trip was a relatively brief one but it close to our base in Agoura Hills and it was the first time that we ever had the wonder of stepping into the Pacific Ocean!

For a January day it was still lovely and pleasant and the beach was quiet which gave us plenty of space to enjoy ourselves.

A real treat, never to be forgotten!

Short Walk to Ocean

We had a relaxing time at this beach; easy access and tranquillity. Families, surfers, seagulls and flying pelicans completes the day.

Fun under the Sun
Aug 2020
This was my first time here and we really enjoyed it. Parking was around $15 but worth it because there were plenty of spaces on a Saturday. The sun was brutal for awhile but after jumping in the cold water it made a big difference. Reminder to all bring an umbrella or one of those large tent coverings which most people had, we didn't so we ended up cooking under the sun. There are many trashcans around so the beach remains very clean from litter.

Relax Beach
Mar 2020
Zuma beach located in where Malibu, a very relax and High-quality beach city. Entry fee $8 (off-season) with plenty of spacious parking space, outdoor wash and lots of toilets. Beach wasn't crowded. The long sandy beach line allows you to stroll and enjoy the sunshine for whole day. Also, you can buy food here if you are hungry. Suitable for family or with friends.
We do like the beach and will come again soon.

祖馬海灘坐落在馬里布(Malibu)所在的地方,這是一個非常放鬆和高品質的海灘城市。 入場費$ 8(淡季),有足夠的寬敞停車位,戶外洗漱和大量洗手間。 長長的沙灘線使您可以漫步並享受一整天的陽光。 另外,如果您餓了,可以在這裡買食物。 適合家人或朋友。
我們確實喜歡這海灘,很快就會再來。

Quiet & clean beech.
Feb 2020 • Couples
If your looking to get away from the hustle & bustle of LA’s beeches and just chill? This is the place.
Super quiet usually & always clean.
Surf is little better up north by Oxnard, so if your looking for that... Wait for a storm. It’s kinda tame @ Zuma. Otherwise, it’s great for a day away.
Be sure to climb the sand dunes on the way up & definitely stay for sunset.
Bring a picnic basket or something, cuz restaurants & stores are slim pickings over there.

We had a lovely afternoon walking along the cement walkway of this beach, taking in the glorious views of the ocean on one side and the cliffside mansions on the other.

Go and enjoy the waves and ocean !
Aug 2019 • Family
Sample a CA beach - very popular in the height of the summer with teenagers and large family gatherings, but can always find a spot to sit without feeling your are too close to your neighbours ! The beach is closely monitored by lifeguards which is good especially for kids as the waves can be big. Its also closely patrolled by security guards on beach buggies - no dogs , no alcohol . Parking 8 dollars weekdays for the day or approx 15/20 dollars on weekends or free alongside the road. Toilets and showers along the beach front , not much in the way of food shops so most people take picnics. Small town centre at one end of the beach, with Starbucks and a up -market supermarket.

Have seen plenty of dolphins at Zuma 🐬
Particularly nice at off peak times.

Really not keen on the tar which is washed up and can sometimes get on the soles of your feet - tricky to remove !
