Part of Malibu's most beautiful coastal area, this beach is made up of three minibeaches: El Pescador, La Piedra, and El Matador—all with the same spectacular view. Scramble down the steps to the rocky coves via steep, steep stairways; all food and water needs to be toted in as there are no services. Portable toilets at the trailhead are the only restrooms. "El Mat" has a series of caves, Piedra some nifty rock formations, and Pescador a secluded feel; but they're all
picturesque and fairly private. Amenities: parking (fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; sunset; surfing; walking. One warning: watch the incoming tide and don't get trapped between those otherwise scenic boulders.
