Zuma Beach is a great place for any van lifer to spend the day. The beach offers surfing, swimming, sunbathing, hiking, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and much more. The water at Zuma is a little colder than at other beaches, and the surf can be rough at times, but it’s still a favorite place for residents and visitors alike.
