Great beach to bring the kids, especially if you go early. Late afternoon it is packed. Good sized waves for body surfing and lots of sand crabs to catch.

Very pretty beach in Malibu that was quiet and family friendly. Great for long walks. Our only complaint was that we all ended up with a tar-like substance on our feet and shoes.

Just before Zuma Beach and the expensive parking is Westward. It is worth it to park here for free and walk down to Zuma. Beautiful surrounds and clean sand!

Favorite of locals looking for a spot of sand and a great view of the waves (and usually some marine life). Not a surfing beach at all. Safe for kids - never crowded.

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
