We stopped at this beach for a quick day trip. We were here about 2hrs or so. It was a quick drive over from Calabasas where we were staying. The beach was easy to access from the PCH parking right on the street and a parking lot. You go doen a flight of stairs to the brach and you forget you are right on the freeway. There was a handful of people on the beach with us which made it nice and relaxing for a Friday. The beach is for surfers. There were a dozen or so out xatching waves. All in all the beach was very easy to get go, clean and not over crowded. Worth the stop.

toping state beach is just down the road from Malibu beach. As we visited very early in the morning it was still deserted. Very easy to park there too.
A lovely white sandy beach.

Alternative to the craziness of Venice. Perhaps an “AltVen”? Downside it is in the midst of the raceway called the Pacific Coast Highway or PCH. Great beach. But if you have time venture further up PCH to Zuma or Leo Carrillo.

Topanga State Beach is easily accessible by public transportation. Fairly close to Santa Monica. The Getty Villa museum is nearby.

Topanga State Beach is easily accessible from Hwy 1 and even on the Sunday we visited you can get parking at the side of Hwy 1. It’s a beautiful beach, it is rocky so wear beach shoes. Well worth a visit and less crowded than other beaches in the area.

Highly accessible, few people, great views! Yes, the 1 highway is busy with a stream of traffic, but just walk down the path and the highway noise just goes away!!
