Zuma Beach, Malibu

4.5
#1 of 25 in Parks in Malibu
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.

  • It was my first time going to this beach. I had fun, but it had alot of seagulls on the beach that day I went.
  • Great place not overcrowded.
  • Perfect beach to visit for people watching. Surf can get good at times..Does get windy most days after 12:00-1:00pm
  • It is a clean beach, has showers to rinse the sand off your feet, and the bathrooms are actually nice and clean. Had a great time.
  • Water was a little rough. But the scenery was beautiful. It was a nice family beach where everyone could have a good time.
