|This 3,000-acre park is at the upcoast end of Malibu, on the floor of a sycamore-shaded canyon that opens to a sandy beach. The park extends on both sides of the PCH. A pedestrian and vehicle underpass connects the canyon to the beach. Its well worth a visit, for it offers good beach access, picnic grounds, and 127 campsites for tents and recreational vehicles. Six campsites are wheelchair accessible. (Reserve early.)
There are two day-use parking areas: inland, just left of the entrance (3 blue spaces), and on the beach side of the underpass. From the inland parking area, a sloping walkway with handrails leads through the underpass beneath the highway to a paved area with a view of the waves crashing into the sea stacks offshore. Between November and May you might see gray whales passing by. The 6,600-foot-long beach is divided into two areas by Sequit Point, with sea caves and a natural tunnel. Borrow a beach wheelchair at the entrance to explore the beach. There are day-use picnic areas with barbecue pits on the upcoast end of the beach.
The campground is shaded by California sycamores. At night, the starry sky is framed beautifully by the canyon walls. Because there are no city lights nearby, the stars are especially bright. Each of the two accessible campsites has water, a picnic table on packed dirt and grass, and a low (15-inch) campfire pit with a grill. In the center of the campground are a store that carries basic supplies and a small amphitheater where people gather for sing-alongs and other events.
There are accessible restrooms and showers throughout the campground, and a unisex accessible restroom on the beach side of the underpass.
