“Amazing waves and plenty of beach...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

My wife and I are locals, and we spend some time at Zuma during the summer months. The waves are amazing, but be careful if you are not an excellent swimmer, as the rip currents are strong and can pull you under at times!

“malibu beaches”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Very nice family beach. Does not get warm until late morning. Parking can be difficult so you may have to drive up and down the road awhile.

“A great walking beach!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Zuma Beach is a great walking beach! Depending on the time of year, one can also find lovely seashells. Enjoyable to watch the surfers. On some magical days will see pods of dolphins and whales. Lifeguards are professional, kind, and watchful. Thank you! Terrific sunsets too.

“A view to remember”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a Friday in November. Parking was $6 cash only and once you leave you have to pay to get back in. The beach was very well maintained with reasonably clean public bathrooms and showers.
Volley ball nets are available for summer fun.
Even in early November it was quite hot between noon and sun set. Bring your swimwear, shorts, beach blanket, and umbrella; you'll need it to get a great tan. Be prepared for the quick change in temperature when the sun sets, it got chilly quite fast. There are no stores to buy beachwear within reasonable distance but if you shell out the money you can get a few items at the "market" convenience store before you enter the beach parking lot.

On the Friday I went, the food stores were not open so bring your own food. The beach only had a few scattered people on it so finding a spot on the beach was a breeze.

Have a great time out there. Just be prepared with food, clothing, and all the summer fun you can imagine.

“Nice, Clean, Well Groomed”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

It's a nice little California beach where the water is cold (in Feb at least) but the beach is clean.
