This beach has some rocks in it but the waves here were the best when we went. We were able to park right next to it on the side of the road and access the beach quickly and easily.

As a Bonanza fan, I was eager to see the new Dan Blocker Beach & dedication plaque. However, since there is no beach access, it is basically a lookout on the PCH with an overpriced parking lot, picnic tables and restrooms. I was very dismayed...More

This newly opened beach "lookout" is just that, a nice place to stop, go to the bathroom and have a nice look at the beach. However there is no beach access and however much money was spent on this project seems like a waste. This...More

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
