I love the beach, but this one really stole my heart, along with Santa Monica. It's just so peaceful. The food on Malibu Pier was absolutely gorgeous and I'm so excited to go back. At the end of the day, I sat and watched the surfers on the water as the sun went down and it was one of the best days of my life. I would highly recommend.

This is the place to be if you want tranquility. Clean beach. No vendors. So be ready with your water and snacks.

You can also play volleyball here. :)

Visited during a Christmas holiday and waves and surfers were not out in full force however there were a few paddle boarders around the Malibu Pier which created an even more lively picturesque setting, especially during the long sunrises and expansive sunsets.

That was the most interesting on this stretch of beach. Some were just amazing at manoeuvring their boards with the waves. Well worth the stop.

Not the best beach in Malibu, but one of the better spots to sun, swim, eat and people watch. The waves are crowded so unless you can hold your own with the best be weary. Swimming is limited to the pier area, but typically it is calmer there so it is kid friendly. There are a few options to rent paddle boards, kayaks, etc. and it is really nice to get "out there" without having to lug around all the gear. Always an interesting crowd with great people watching and right next to the pier which has some really good dining and a few cool shops. Be warned, parking is a nightmare...
