Zuma Beach

From the southernmost tip of Zuma Beach in Malibu, there is a nice 4-mile walk that goes over Point Dume peninsula and along several pretty coves. Here is the view south from the top of Point Dume:

When we did this walk, we saw spear fishermen, scuba divers, surfers, rock climbers, pelicans, anemones, two seals, a starfish, and a beach wedding. Here is a view from the top of the stairs down to Zuma Cove:

Directions to the Point Dume hike are available on the Local Hikes website.


  1. Planet of the Apes (1968) final scene was filmed here.

  2. I want to take this hike. I think a camp site may be in the vicinity. Planet of the Apes? wow

  3. I don't usually like going to the beach that much. But this walk is really nice because there are a lot of different things to look at and there are good tide pools at Zuma Cove.
