This place was quite a find. For a reasonable parking fee (as little as $3 for one hour or $12 for all day), you have access to a lovely stroll around the lagoon (lots of birds to be seen) with plenty of benches and picnic...More
Nice and quite beach, plenty of cheap parking. Beach is a 5 min walk from car park. Not as busy as some of the beaches we passed - a couple of porta-loos if you get caught short. Plenty of waves for surfing.
I came here with my service dog at about 11 am on October 5th, 2018.
I was promptly denied access by a lifeguard after paying for parking. I asserted to the lifeguard my dog is a service dog and I could even provide paperwork in...More
We love to go here and in the evenings watch the fish jump and skip across the water. At times is seems as if they're racing each other and look like a stone skipping across the water.
It's a nice walk to view the lagoon...More
This is a perfect beach ‼️🌴
We loved the short walk from the parking lot to the beach ;saving a dollar on all day parking ‼️ Eleven dollars ‼️
Perfect place for a picnic or a stroll down the beach
Plenty of beautiful birds to...More
The water was so nice and the waves of moderate proportions. The lagoon is off limits but watching the birds was very interesting. We spent a nice afternoon swimming and relaxing on this beach. The Malibu Village is right across the parking lot on the...More
Good sandy beach for swimming. Moderate size waves. Good for families. The walk to the beach is interesting, going thru marshland (no mosqiutos is a plus!) with plenty of shore birds doing their thing.
I'm a fan!
First time in Malibu and drove from Northridge. Enjoyed the view en route here too.
I like the lagoon and the restored path. The beach was awesome, quiet (on a weekday in Spring when we went).
Would love to go back.
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.
Hi, I'm looking for some advice on planning a day trip to Malibu - it will be May, and we are staying in Santa Monica and will have a car. I would like to spend a full day in Malibu doing a number of short hikes - I've been reading tonnes about hiking in the area and there are so many options I need some help to prioritise! On my list I've got Point Mugu, Point Dume, Zuma Beach, Leo Carrillo Beach, Malibu Creek State Park, Solstice Canyon... far too many for one day I think? I'd...More

Of all those, Pt Mugu State Park is my favorite as it’s virtually in my backyard.... but from the other side. The views from some of the trails are the best in Southern California. I think you have chosen some good areas but are also correct in thinking you chose too many. Stick to the areas closer to Malibu like Topanga and Pt Duke. Nobody will care if you’re wearing hiking clothes, by the way.
