A van or RV trip to Malibu isn’t complete without a walk along the famous Zuma Beach. The beach is 1.8 miles long and has actual parking right up to the beach. The beach includes food stands, restrooms, restaurants, showers, and volleyball courts. Zuma Beach makes a wonderful place to park the van and spend the day surfing, paddle boarding, or just lounging around watching the scenery.
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.
Point Dume State Park
Located adjacent to Zuma Beach is Point Dume State Beach. Point Dume features headlands, cliffs, and rocky coves. The beach is noted for swimming, surfing, scuba diving, and fishing.
Point Dume is a perfect place to watch California gray whales during their December to mid-April migration period. A gradual trail from the parking lot leads to an ancient coastal bluff dune.
Also located at Point Dume is Pirates Cove beach, a small secluded beach that allows you to escape the crowds.
