Broad Beach in Malibu has lots of place and good parking available. The beach offers a wide stretch of sand, with good swimming conditions.

Unfortunately accessible only at low tide. properties owners put rock to limit beach erosion, and access to the edge of their properties. few are interesting in terme or architectural approach, but as most in Malibu, most are just we properties. Very expensive

It is a regular haunt when in Malibu and the reasons are more sentimental than touristy. Quiet part of the beach, just beautiful!

There is better access points now but you have to know where to go to get the the beach. No crowds and an upscale area. Bring everything you need because there are no places to get anything on this beach.

The once aptly named Broad Beach is now so depleted of sand that neighboring homeowners have created a special assessment district to replenish the beach. Don't bother visiting until after it's done.

The accessways put you on a beautiful beach with good swimming and a sandy bottom if you can ignore all the massive boulders that run parallel to the surf line for the entire length of the beach.

This is a wonderful and much quieter alternative to the busy Zuma beach. Just be careful of the tide coming in in the late afternoon...there won't be any beach left!

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
