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 Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice people. Places to rock climb. Not too crowded when we went. Parking was easy enough in the lot and we could pay for parking with a credit card at the kiosks around. There is also free street parking in some of the higher up streets for those who don't mind walking.

  • I would give 5 star to this beach because it is the nicest beach and peaceful beach I have been. The day I visited with family members, I really had a very good experience. The parking place is good with lot of space and there are bathrooms as well.

  • Breathtaking views, gorgeous beaches truly amazing Pacific Coast. The best place in all of Southern California for a small hike, appreciate the Pacific Ocean and enjoy the beautiful beach. The best time to visit here is later in the day, best weather and fantastic sunsets!☀️🌊 Keep your eyes wide open you might get to see some seals and beautiful dolphins 🐬 Parking is limited, you can park on the street just be aware there are no parking zones.

  • Look amazing from the road. But the parking space is too limited. No way to park and hike here. It’s pity that we can only drive by. Hope they can provide more parking space in the future.

  • 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
