Zuma Beach, Malibu

(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
One of the most popular beaches in the greater Los Angeles area, Zuma Beach attracts swimmers, surfers, fishers, and beachgoers alike with reliable waves and smooth sands. Part of Malibu's famous coastline, the beach stretches along the Pacific Ocean and is backed by mountains and foothills. You can hit the waves on a surfboard or body-board and then soak up the sun on sand renowned for its cleanliness. Though lifeguards are on duty during the day, you need to be careful at all times in the water; rip currents can be very strong.

  • A short trip ever Malibu Beach looked at. No, Baywatch was filmed in Santa Monica ;) In March, another strong cool breeze wind, blowing so that Sun is more difficult but not impossible. The beach is at the time so that you him for the season prepared. He looks anyway, still not inviting. The sun still seems very positive.

  • Wide open beaches for lots of fun in the sun! Great for romantic walks at sunset or making memories with the kiddos.  more »
  • Great beach to take a kid to play in the sand. Easy access and pretty quiet during the weekdays. There is a snack stand nearby.  more »
