Nice beach

Bathrooms, free parking on the street (and paid right there), plenty of space! Malibu has so many beaches to offer and this one is super easy to access! Note: I did not surf here, just went for a beach day and walk.

Fun

Great place to surf when the swell is up!

Make sure there's some west in the swell for it to be really working.
