What more is there to say? If you are able to get onto this "beach" you probably will experience what the top 1% have. Just don't venture too close to their fabulous homes! Spectacular (for them). Envy for us?

the beach is nice, but the winter has been tough on it, I would advise going to zuma beach first, the sand is better

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
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted
