Point Dume State Beach and Preserve
#1 of 27 Nature & Parks in Malibu
Perfect location for a peaceful walk on the beach if you go early and immerse yourself in nature.
You will be thankful you heard it from me... :) Make sure you drive all the way to the end, park in the parking lot at the end, where you will reach the best spot of the beach.
El Matador State Beach
#2 of 27 Nature & Parks in Malibu
Well...after the "average" and possibly costly visit to Paradise Cove Pier & beach (not for me), I explored beaches NORTH of it and found THIS BEACH!! What a GREAT FIND... Park in the lot (nominal fee).
When we came there weren't too many people around and it was a very pretty nature beach with nice sand and rocks/rock formations and cliffs.
Topanga State Park Los Angeles 10.9 km away

Leo Carrillo State Park and Beach
#4 of 27 Nature & Parks in Malibu
Had a great time wading in the tide pool and climbing the rocks, my teenager thoroughly enjoyed looking at nature in the water.
Looked up best tide pool beaches in Southern Cali and this park was in top 5. Easy access to beach by stairs from street (if lots are full).

Soak in all the best sceneries of the endless mysterious coastlines, hundreds of birds, multimillion dollar oceanfront mansions, linked mountains and many more nature creations!
This is an absolutely gorgeous Sate Park with options for easy to strenuous hiking, short, medium or long as well as biking and horse back riding.

Paradise Cove
#6 of 27 Nature & Parks in Malibu
Wonderful bar sandwiches and seafood are enjoyed while curling your toes in the sand at the outdoor tables or park yourself in the timeless atmosphere indoors.
Yes, it is up the PCH....yes, it has it own signal light...yes, you may have to be patient to park.....but, the trade off for what you can experience in return is so worth it.
Paramount Ranch Agoura 10.7 km away
#1 of 3 Nature & Parks in Agoura
The park is free to visit and is an easy walk but has access to fabulous trails to explore.
We have been many times - in summer they run a program of nature walks and talks which are really interesting and we were once lucky to stumble across a movie being filmed.
Solstice Canyon
#7 of 27 Nature & Parks in Malibu
Solstice Canyon is a park within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in Malibu, California.
Parking is a challenge if you are going during a popular time (weekends) so you may need to park before you get to the official parking lot or loop it looking for someone who is leaving.
Westward Beach
#8 of 27 Nature & Parks in Malibu
It is worth it to park here for free and walk down to Zuma.
this is my favorite, and I live here ! the parking is free, ( if you can find it ) you park on the sand and your there ... it is not as busy as the rest, BUT its the best.

#6 of 98 Nature & Parks in Los Angeles
This peaceful, vast park has a variety of activities including a polo field, historic home of Will Rogers, riding stables and miles of trails adjacent to Topanga Park.
we then took this "inspirational loop trail" that begins and ends at the park. the trail is under a mile but with enough elevation along the way to allow for some breathtaking views of the santa monica bay.
