About Point Dume, Malibu

Of what is frequently termed as the “quintessential SoCal beach” the Point Dume State Beach and Preserve is a must for beach lovers. One of the bets nature’s wonders is what you get to see at this attraction, essentially a promontory. You can choose to walk around, swim, surf, just sit and be, and even hike up the buff and if you are lucky, get to watch a Hollywood film getting sot, perhaps. Since this is a California park administered by the local authorities, there are opening and closing hours applicable.

Point Dume, Malibu Reviews

  • It was a really pretty place to go to the beach and see the large rock formation. We didn’t stay long as it wasn’t the best of days but it was still nice. The parking was $3 for a couple hours which isn’t bad.

  • Great place for an easy walk with incredible views over the ocean. It offers some spectacular panoramas and in a sunny day it is perfect for snapping pictures. Just be careful, parking is extremely limited in the area, so go early or get prepared to wait a while. Also, it is often windy out there.

  • Great short trail with stunning views over the ocean. Offers incredible photo opportunities especially near sunset time. Only issue is the extreme limited parking. Very recommended for a relaxing day out

  • Great scenic spot, I went during daytime on a weekday and had no issues with a parking spot (very limited, so might be busier and harder to find a spot on popular times). There are stairs all the way down to the beach, definitely worth it. Overall this is a great place to relax and enjoy the view (even saw some dolphins).

  • Great views and we saw a whale. Stairs down may create some issues if a person has a disability. It is worth seeing this part of cycle of life that is incredibly beautiful
