All of the beaches have their charms.

If you want beaches with area beach bars, then Venice or Santa Monica.

If you want an upscale time, in North Santa Monica, the Annenberg Beach House is a good bet, or any Perry's Cafe's along Santa Monica beach will rent chairs/umbrellas.

f you want beaches with no services, then Malibu's El Matador is lovely.

Zuma is a long swatch of beach in Malibu. very popular. A prettier one next to it is Pt. Dume. If you like to tidepool, then Leo Carillo State Beach is your jam, be there an hour prior to full low tide (tables can be accessed online).

If you want to explore the small beach towns of LA, then Redondo, Hermosa or Manhattan Beach are very nice, and connected via the beach bike path.

Something for anyone at the beaches!

Also check out the best beach near Malibu pier. Nearby are all the surfers riding a ten and hanging a halfpipe. I think it is called surfrider beach. Best and most clear beach. You might see baby dolphins swimming next to you doing backflips. Not sure if they do that but it could happen. So near Malibu pier.

Also, if you are into Westworld (the TV show) or the Furious films, then visit Leo Carrillo, where they were partially filmed.

Zuma has also been used for filming too but not as much recently as Leo Carrillo.
