  • Possibly my favorite beach in the Los Angeles area. Unbeatable for the sunsets and a lot more quiet than Zuma and Surf Rider. Used to get my party on here back in the day, had a good time at Lindsay Lohans 4th of July party so definitely 5 stars for Carbon Beach!
  • Beautiful beach! Lots of interesting houses to look at as you walk from the pier south. Free parking along PCH. Use Malibu Beach app to check which parts of beach are public (all wet is public and a lot of the dry areas too)
