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.

Nearby Attractions

While most people visit the beach just for a day of sand, sun, surf and fun, there are actually many interesting attractions all within easy reach of the beach. So if you want to combine some activities in a day in the area, or simply want to allow some members of your group to do different things, then consider some of these nearby attractions.

Point Dume - At the end of the beach, visible as you look all the way to the left while facing the sea, Point Dume is a rocky promontory that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The point, a long bluff, forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay. It is most interesting as a rock climbing location as the rocking mound forms a natural climbing wall with very moderate single pitch rock climbing routes that are perfect for the beginner or training, or simply for those simply wishing to try out natural rock climbing.
