Just before Zuma Beach and the expensive parking is Westward. It is worth it to park here for free and walk down to Zuma. Beautiful surrounds and clean sand!
I was recommended to go here by our host at AirBnb. So we went there during sunset. There is a short hike from the beach to top of the small hill, takes approx 15 minutes to get to the top. You will have from there almost 360 degree view. It is really amazing to see Santa Monica and Malibu shore... 更多
Favorite of locals looking for a spot of sand and a great view of the waves (and usually some marine life). Not a surfing beach at all. Safe for kids - never crowded.
Westward Beach is just south of Zuma and actually connected. It's about a mile long. Take the ZUMA exit and follow westward road south. Lots of room and space for all. Nice wide sandy beach with plenty of restrooms and trash cans....use them Put your trash in the cans. Lifeguard towers and a smaller headquarters south near pt. dume. Parking... 更多
Do not miss this beach! It's tucked around the bend from Zuma and I found it to be much nicer and less crowded than Zuma. The views are beautiful and it's easy access to the Point Dume Hiking Trails... I would recommend checking this place out!!!!
Very nice beach. Accessible by car, free and paid parking (fee area is much less crowded). Restrooms, outdoor showers and foot showers, restaurant halfway along beach. At end is Point Dume with waves breaking on rocks. Great sand and surf to walk and wade in, spectacular place for sunsets. Overall a wonderful and relaxing place to hang out.
Get there as early as possible. We got there at 11:30am and all of the parking was full with no nearby parking anywhere. There was no street parking, the free and paid lots were both full as well. We ended up not being able to enjoy Westward at all but had to drive further north up the coast.
I've been all over the world, and have visited most of the famous beaches and when I come home to Malibu - I still think West are between the two main beaches, although if you have kids or are going to be in the water alot you might want to be closer to a life guard. Due to limited parking,... 更多
