Okay, this used to be a great place to eat and just hang out. But then, greed set in. You are charged for absolutely everything...parking, to sit on the beach, and of course food. It's a tourist destination which means it's crowded. It's expensive and...More

A great place to park and walk along the beach. Not a lot of people walk the stretch going southbound. It is lined with private residences, but you can walk along the water's edge. Beautiful location.

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

Response from Melinda N | Reviewed this property |
Yes. The fee to park is $6 if you purchase $40+ of food and drink. But you can only stay for a couple of hours. Or you can park all day for $40. Only debit/credit card, no cash, at the kiosk.

Agree with the $20-30 mark, that seems to ring a bell. But neat advise from the other respondent - across the road sounds good for me!!
