We took the time to drive up the cost from LA. Well worth the trip. The beach was quite. The Sunset was beautiful. We saw seals swimming with the surfers. Best experience on the trip.

Zuma is a beautiful beach that is exactly what you picture when you think of southern CA beaches! It costs $15 to park, but you can just as easily park on the street for free. Maybe no “just” as easily as you have to make...More

Parking is $15 and Sheriffs are using the opportunity to check registration stickers to make sure they are valid. So after paying $15 to park , I was ticketed because my registration sticker wasn’t displayed. There are plenty of bathrooms and trash bins, so that...More

Long sandy beach, just wanted to say well done to the people of Malibu. I walked quite a way down this beach and I did not see one single piece of rubbish. The water also looked clean and clear. Will definitely come back.

The beach it self was very nice, but on the day we were there (April 22nd 2018) it was as full of sticky oil tar balls.

Heading from Venice beach to Zuma we were (pleasantly) shocked with the lack of crowds. There are volleyball nets, plenty of life guards and a vast amount of sand and yet hardly anybody else was there at the same time as us.

Friends of ours took us here so we could experience a Malibu style beach walk. Parking costs money if you can’t park in the street and the toilets are pretty bad, but the beach itself is fairly good. The highlight though was the walk at...More

Loved this place. We went twice during our vacation to Los Angeles. A beautiful beach to go for a long walk. Everything was clean. It was relatively cold and windy for March but that made no difference. During our first visit they were shooting a...More

Having been to Malibu a handful of times over the years, it's a bit of an odd place. The wealth/celebrity factor weigh heavily on the air of the town, but there is also pretty conspicuous evidence of an emerging (or abiding) grunginess. That said, Zuma...More

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

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
