5. Malibu Lagoon State Beach

Another great beach for some tide pooling and photography, Malibu Lagoon offers beautiful white, sandy beaches and the opportunity to see some wildlife.

While not the typical wide open sandy beach, it is still great for swimming, walking, and checking out the tide pools. The water is calmer here, but Surfrider Beach is right next door for the surfing enthusiasts.

When you’ve had your fun at this beautiful beach, check out the historical museum and visit the Adamson House.

Also, don’t forget to grab a delicious bite to eat at one of the many restaurants close to the Malibu beaches!
