The beach is fabulous and the lifeguards are top notch. Bathrooms are close and convenient also. We had no problem parking on the street because we were there in the middle of the week.

Zuma Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Malibu to spend a day with family and friends. Perfect for a gentle swim.

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
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted

Hello, I am interested in going to the beach this weekend with my service dog. I am just double checking that as long as she has her vest and ID tag, I will not run into any problems? Have not taken her to California beaches yet since relocating. Thank you, Emily R

No. You can walk your dog along the road and through the parking lot all the way to Point Dume, but you cannot go on the sand or walk along the shoreline with your doggies. The only dog friendly beach up there is Oxnard... More
