If you are fond of vivid rock formations, then a trip to the El Matador State beach is a must while you are in Malibu. It lies close to the Point Dume State Beaches. The beach is notable for its “pocket beaches”. These are nothing but a cluster of cliff-foot strands or coves. Its beauty even draws visitor from Los Angeles, besides other part of the country. There are plenty of tide pools too scattered naturally around the beach. An absolute delight even when it is foggy!

  • Beautiful beach well worth a visit. Good luck trying to park, we had to wait a while for a space. It's a small car park for a popular beach! Enjoy scenic views, peaceful and secluded beach with uninterrupted sunshine and ocean. Lots of 'instagrammers' posing here, so if it's good enough for one of their vanity shoots...

  • One of the most interesting beaches in Southern California. Photogenic rock formations on a nice sandy beach. The very large rocks separate this beach into smaller areas for family groupings. There are also some caves to explore when the tides are out. It's located in Malibu just off Pacific Coast Highway #1. The parking lot is too small so that you may need to wait 20 minutes or more to get a space. It also cost me $6 for 2 hours. You need to walk down several flights of stairs to reach the sand. But, it was all worth it for the amazing views. I will bring g more friends there.

  • One of the top five most beautiful beaches in all of Southern California, gorgeous sunsets and breathtaking views. A picturesque beach ideal for a day out with family, clean and blue ocean water. Parking charge is $3.00 per hour, you can also park on the street but of course it’s a hassle carrying things and walking a longer distance. The best time to be there and get a nice spot it’s early in the morning, they open at 8:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM Sunset.

  • It's located in Malibu just off Pacific Coast Highway #1. One of the top five most beautiful beaches in all of Southern California, gorgeous sunsets and breathtaking views.The Photogenic rock formations on a nice sandy beach. Very relaxed, great scenery, and not too crowded. Parking is limited and it's a hard hike up after the fun. Definitely worth visiting

  • The place is awesome and there are 3 small cliff beaches. The food and the park is great. It is one of the best beaches to relax and spend time.A must visit for all.
