    Great beach. Not too overcrowded like some beaches in L.A. are. Great for strolls along the beach too. The sunsets are beautiful 😍 Definitely one of my favorite beaches to visit.

    Best beach in SoCal! Great waves, beautiful area w/ mountains hugging the coast. Not too far out from town and the water is very good. Skip Santa Monica and come up PCH a bit. You'll be glad you did.

    If the weather is nice, and it almost always is, Zuma Beach is one of the best places to spend your afternoon at in Los Angeles. Take in the picture-perfect panorama, and enjoy the West Coast sun! Read more

    Nice, relaxing beach. The best parking of any of the local beaches, a huge perk if you're lugging tons of supplies. There's free street parking, though I recommend the paid parking for convenience.

    Great "default" beach on PCH. If you want something more private just go up the road. Plenty of life guards if you have the kiddos- but don't be a goof! Like any SoCal beach- riptides can be fierce.

    The beach, mountains, surf, water and sunsets. VOLZumaSrf was born here and will most likely# die here. However all of my friends and family have since abandoned me, so the birds may have to pick

    What a day... What a beach. Clean waters and sand. Arrive early to get a good spot. Free parking on Wayward Beach Street right off PCH.

    Park for free on Westward Beach Road, right off the Pacific Coast Highway. For dinner, try the Reel Inn, where you eat simply grilled fish from a tray at picnic tables.

    Remember: in case of attack, you don’t have to be able to swim faster than a shark. Rather, you have to swim faster than the slowest person in the water with you. Then, hope for a lazy shark.

    Beautiful beach. Gets kinda crowded in the summer but still super fun. Beach patrol is super uptight there though. They definately have no problem writing you a ticket
    Kyle Harris · June 23, 2011
  • Hillary N.
    The ocean is beautiful. Never too crowded and an amazing view of the mountains. Might see whales or seals!

    This is a great malibu beach. Pretty typical. Got crowded on the weekend but was much less so on a weekday.

    The hills meet the ocean at this absolutely beautiful beach and will make you forget that you are but a few miles away from the 11 million residents of greater Los Angeles.

    You have to pay for your parking. But time is unlimited. If you want a public park, which is not worse, it is nearby.
    Анна Коршенко · December 1, 2014
  • Bérenger
    Maybe touristic, but the beach is so big and long that there is plenty of room for everybody. The walk along the shore is great!
    Bérenger · September 5, 2015
  • Human Tripod
    Awesome beach! Not too crowded, excellent surf/wave conditions, super soft sand...perfect! Only complaint would be parking.
    Human Tripod · July 28, 2011
  • Chen C.
    It's an absolutely beautiful beach. You can walk into the ocean via the sand bar that's just a few feet away from the shore
    Chen Cao · March 15, 2015

    LA's greatest beach. Popular, clean and fun. Decent waves but watch out for the riptide!
    Jeremy Krantz · November 14, 2014

    It was a perfect day for the Beach, cool and cloudy, then sun came out, swimming in the waves for about 2 hours, then the cloud cover came back.

    Wow what's a beautiful beach of surfing paradise with the amazing waves in Malibu. You're welcome here & enjoy yourself.

    The mountains dotted with wealthy Malibu homes drop sharply to the beach below offering a surreal landscape experience.

    Zuma Beach is one of the most magical destinations in the world !!! The whale and dolphin spotting is euphoric!

    Perfect shoreline for skimboarding during mid/high-tide, just be extra cautious hitting those swells!
