Incredible homes on this stretch of beach. The sand is softer than Carbon Beach. At high tide you cannot walk on the beach though. Parking is very limited.

This is my local beach. NO lifeguards, hard to find the gates but if you find them you have a wonderful beach that is normally fairly light in foot traffic. It’s a “dog friendly beach” in that no patrol come by so a lot of...More

What more is there to say? If you are able to get onto this "beach" you probably will experience what the top 1% have. Just don't venture too close to their fabulous homes! Spectacular (for them). Envy for us?

the beach is nice, but the winter has been tough on it, I would advise going to zuma beach first, the sand is better

Broad Beach in Malibu has lots of place and good parking available. The beach offers a wide stretch of sand, with good swimming conditions.

Unfortunately accessible only at low tide. properties owners put rock to limit beach erosion, and access to the edge of their properties. few are interesting in terme or architectural approach, but as most in Malibu, most are just we properties. Very expensive

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

field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted
