“That's Not a Beach, This..... is a Beach !!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

OK , winter isn't the best time to visit or rate a beach I suppose but as I swim all year round I do know a little and I've dipped my toes in the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific Oceans & a couple of Seas !!!
I actually liked the whole feel of Zuma. I reckon it's crowded in season, it was pretty busy on a cold Saturday, but no one in the briny ?? Soft , these Californian Girls (& Boys) what ??
You can tell parking (paid, free etc) would be a nightmare in busy times but I still think it is a good stop on the PCH and as beaches go I've seen a lot worse !!

“Another nice beach in Malibu - who knew?”
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”
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”
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.
