Los Angeles County’s largest beach is Zuma Beach with open hours of operation from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. It served as the background for many films and movies, including Baywatch and I Dream of Jeanie. Zuma is known as one of the cleanest beaches around with waves that are ideal for surfers and swimmers who enjoy a little challenge. Of course, you can bring your own food and snacks, but if you forget, there is a snack bar to keep you full. Take a break from eating and lounging by playing a bit of volleyball on the public courts, pushing your kids on the swing sets or allowing the wind to push your peddles as you bike along the beach’s paved path. Every year, the Malibu Nautica Triathalon takes over the beach bring a massive crowd of sports lovers and participants. Alcohol and pets are not allowed on the beach, so leave the beer and dogs at home. Parking ranges from $3.00-$10.00 based on the season. Zuma Beach is a bit of a distance, but the drive along the water is well worth it.
