I'm a fan! First time in Malibu and drove from Northridge. Enjoyed the view en route here too. I like the lagoon and the restored path. The beach was awesome, quiet (on a weekday in Spring when we went). Would love to go back.

Everyone has heard of Malibu beach and lagoon and the surf beaches. This is well worth taking a detour off your CPH drive to stop and hang out around Malibu for a bit and cruise by the beach and watch the surfers. Great fun!!

It was a bit of a walk from the parking lot, but once you got onto the beach it was beautiful. Nice views of the houses on Malibu Beach, people surfing, seals swimming and laying on the rocks, a lifeguard is on duty.

Went here on a weekday so it was quiet. Struggled to find parking on the main road but the beach itself was fantastic!

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
