But for the nice sunny day you’d like to hang out at the beach, why travel to a crowded beach full of surfers and others? If you would prefer a smaller hidden gem, check out this list of our top choices for Malibu beaches!
6. Broad Beach
4. Escondido Beach
This narrow sandy beach actually translated from Spanish into “Hidden Beach”! One of the most beautiful gems in the Malibu area, nearby homeowners have fought unsuccessfully for decades (as seen on CNN, LA Times, the Guardian and elsewhere) to keep beachgoers away from the beach. You may need to ignore a few signs, but rest assure that anyone can access to this beach. Located just below the bluff from the Geoffrey’s Malibu restaurant, visitors will have to park on PCH just before the restaurant to venture down here. Being top rated for water quality, scuba diving and snorkeling are common activities for party bus and Malibu limo service customers who travel out here.
3. Staircase Beach
2. El Matador State Beach
1. Lechuza Beach
An even lesser known beach is Lechuza Beach, situated at the northern end of Broad Beach Road. Known for its gorgeous rock formations and secluded character, it is found just a little ways up from Broad Beach. The long walking path takes you from the Bunnie Ln. and Broad Beach Rd. intersection and down to the beach. Unlike most other beaches in the area, Lechuza Beach isn’t connected to other beaches and is therefore a true hidden Malibu gem. Our Malibu limo service has often transferred beach-goers here as the beach lacks its own parking lot. Although there are no public restrooms or showers here, you can take easily take a stroll from the beach to the nearby Starbucks and gas station on PCH and Broad Beach Rd. Its naturally rocky coastline, seclusion and tons of vegetation resemble a Pacific Island more than an LA County beach!
If none of these were particularly intriguing, check out Orange County’s Thousand Steps Beach for one of Southern California’s most scenic beaches. A popular activity for many of our clients in Malibu is to combine wine-tasting tours with a day at the beach. Located right across the PCH from Topanga Beach is where we find the Rosenthal Wine Bar & Patio, a wine-tasting room that offers great views of the Pacific Ocean. Further inland you can venture on wine-tasting tours to wineries such as Malibu Family Wines, Cornell Winery & Wine-Tasting Room and SIP Malibu Grapes. For those who prefer an even more secluded beach than those mentioned here, ordering limousine services to visit the California Channel Islands might be your best choice. Whether to visit the peaceful white sand beaches of Santa Rosa Island or to explore the coastline of Catalina Island, a Malibu limo service can get you to the dock in style! We are servicing all of Southern California and all its beaches, but please keep our limos clean from sand.
