How to get to Zuma Beach
At almost 40 miles from downtown LA the Zuma Beach is about an hour drive depending on traffic. The route is extremely simple and mostly of heading west on I-10 following signs for Santa Monica, then switching to CA Highway 1 or the N/E Pacific Coast Highway and following that past Malibu.
It is possible to go via public transit if you don't want to park or simply wish to lighten the load on the planet. Using the Metro blue line and then the expo line to get to Culver City Station, where there is a bus stop at the corner of Venice and Robertson for the Metro Express 534 bus towards Malibu. There is a stop right along the beach at Morning View.
Although it is a pretty flat road, following the coast, it is a long way to bike and not recommended for cyclists.
