Half a day in Malibu before leaving for the airport tomorrow

Any advice on where to spend a day on the beach from approx 10am-3pm tomorrow before leaving for the airport? Does any of the hotels rent beach chairs for a day with an access to showers? And what's the good beach with two young teens aged 12 and 13? Thanks for your help!!

Hotels, no.

Zuma Beach has changing rooms and cold beach showers.

Wherever you go keep an eye on your car if it's full of your valuables.

Santa Monica does have beach chairs for rent at Perry's Cafes. Cold showers at every restroom dotting the beach. Perhaps this will suit:

I also like Zuma Beach, plenty of paid parking ($8-14) or you can park on PCH for free if you get there early enough but like Tom said make sure all your luggage is locked in the trunk before parking.

The only place I can think of that rents chairs, etc. is at Paradise Cove, $50 for 2 chairs and an umbrella, or you can make do with towels, or buy a couple of cheap chairs at a drugstore, etc.
