“Another nice beach in Malibu - who knew?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Zuma is another lovely beach in Malibu, long golden sand that stretches for a distance. I came here after work and this beach would be really nice with a family, plenty of space and good lifeguard huts dotted generously along the shore front.

There's free parking on the Pacific Coast Highway (if you ever want free parking for the beach in Malibu, just use the PCH!)

“I guess its all about expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Was really looking forward to visiting this beach. But being accustomed the grand strand Atlantic Ocean beaches that are huge with amazing sand, this was a let down. Beach is long, but so small in width. Waves weren't big the day we visited so no surfers were out. Sunset was pretty, but once again the beach itself is just ok.

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Beach was great, well groomed, not too busy. Washrooms were rough, I don't expect much, yet they still failed to meet expectations. Lots of parking and pretty views.

“Zuma Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Great sunsets, lots of parking and good surf make this beach a great destination. Lots of volleyball courts and easy access food right across PCH.

“Nice, long, wide beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Wish we had found this one earlier during our week-long stay in Malibu. Very nice, long, and wide beach, great sand for walking. The panoramic view of the beach as you approach it from the highway is beautiful. Unlike neighboring Dume Point, it has facilities, which were very clean. We visited towards the evening, so there was adequate parking and no crowds. Time permitting, of all the beaches, we would have returned to Zuma to hang out for a few hours.
