Zuma Beach, Malibu
(4.2/5 based on 500+ 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 beautiful (Sandy) Beach (with lifeguard) and proper sanitation. If you're lucky you get free parking.

  • A wonderful not crowded beach with an infinite distance. The water is very cold, which ensures rapid cooling due to the heat.

  • The places for lounging doesn't fail. The beach is huge, the grain is fine and the place is superbly well exposed to the winds.
