Very pretty beach in Malibu that was quiet and family friendly. Great for long walks. Our only complaint was that we all ended up with a tar-like substance on our feet and shoes.

areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
