Review of Westward Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Westward Beach is beautiful and if it looks familiar, it's because it has appeared in many TV shows, commercials and movies. I shot an ad campaign for Acuvue Contact Lenses there in the late 90's and have been coming back ever since. There is a famous scene at the end of the original Planet Of The Apes movie (1968) that was shot there – that showed a crumbling, sunken Statue of Liberty jutting out from the rocks. It looks exactly the same (minus the matte painting of Miss Liberty). It really is a beautiful beach. Make sure you climb over the rocks to find an even more secluded area, known as Pirate's Cove. You can also climb up to the top of the cliffs for stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. That area is known as Point Dume. There are some trails and great views in every direction. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins. They are everywhere. And who knows, maybe you'll stumble on to the set of BAYWATCH: THE REUNION. If you do, post some pix so we can all see!

Slightly down the road from Zuma beach, this is a quieter beach with bigger waves. Most beach entry is fairly steep so be careful with small kids. The views are amazing! You have a very good chance of seeing dolphins or the occasional seal. A great beach to just chill at and watch the waves. Take a hike up to the top of Point Dume to see a looonnnggg way north and south.

I've been coming to this beach since I was little. It has always been a clean beach. The lifeguards are amazing. We just about always see dolphins. There is a big rock you can climb that has a trail to get to the top and look over the ocean or around it and see sea urchins and other sea life.
It's beautiful and clean!
