    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
