One of the most popular beaches in the greater Los Angeles area, Zuma Beach attracts swimmers, surfers, fishers, and beachgoers alike with reliable waves and smooth sands. Part of Malibu's famous coastline, the beach stretches along the Pacific Ocean and is backed by mountains and foothills. You can hit the waves on a surfboard or body-board and then soak up the sun on sand renowned for its cleanliness. Though lifeguards are on duty during the day, you need to be careful at all times in the water; rip currents can be very strong.

Stunningly beautiful beach. Clean water. Full of families. Relaxing. Many amenities such as bathrooms and places to eat. Just love it! Would go again in a heartbeat. more »
It was my first time going to this beach. I had fun, but it had alot of seagulls on the beach that day I went.
Great place not overcrowded.
