El Matador Beach - Review

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!

El Matador Beach, Malibu Reviews

  • When I was here there was a group of professional photographers taking good shots of the scenery. I can’t blame them because this place is one of the most peaceful places on the west coast. Everyone needs to go out here sometime! 🔥👌🏻

  • Those stairs are a b***h, but SO worth it! Just don’t bring too much stuff with you like I did. After a full day at the beach, those stairs and my beach gear were no joke! Be sure to check the tide schedule too. We were run out of there pretty quick when the tide came rushing in! It was a truly lovely place though. Worth the trouble!

  • Very different experience than going to a beach as Santa Monica, Long Beach or Venice. The beach feels much more Isolated and the view is 100% more beautiful which makes this a perfect place for a romantic date or a relaxing walk. The place isn't really filled with families and kids, even on the weekends. 100% one of my favorite places to visit on a date

  • Beautiful beach just far enough away to make it a little less crowded. It's a great place for photography or simply for relaxing and enjoying a nice afternoon. The stairs might be too much for people with physical limitations but the upper area also has amazing views worthy of a trip.

  • This is like one of the nicest still not very tourist know about beaches. Its a small one, doesn't take that many people or cars to park, it's not easy access as you will have to walk down the stairs from the road. Once you get down, it is one of the nicest beaches there, still natural, surrounded by rocks, and have some of the most beautiful natural views of big rocks right on the shore. When it is quiet, the waves sound hitting the rocks is breathtaking. It is not as enjoyable when crowded on weekends as it is a tiny beach.
