Zuma Beach

30000 Pacific Coast Hwy.
Malibu, CA, 90265, United States

Three miles of wide, white sand make Zuma Beach one of the most popular beaches in Southern California. Both experts and beginners visit the area for surfing, fishing, running, swimming, and kitesurfing. Amenities include a playground for kids, wheelchair accessible walkway, a 2,025-space public parking lot, restrooms, seasonal food vendors, and showers (cold) to rinse off the sand. Zuma joins Westward Beach along its southernmost point, where rip tides waves become more dangerous. Grilling on the beach is prohibited due to the high risk of wildfires.

Insider Tip:

The last scene from The Planet of the Apes was filmed here, along Point Dume’s rocky cliff face.
