Secluded sands, Malibu
Thomas J. Story

Secluded sands, Malibu

Like Zuma Beach, its famous neighbor just to the north, Westward Beach has ample parking and powerful waves. But bordered by sandstone bluffs instead of PCH’s pavement, it feels more unspoiled. The headland of Point Dume forms the beach’s southern boundary, and if you want even more privacy, hike up and over the point, then down a staircase to secluded Dume Cove. Westward Beach Rd., off Pacific Coast Hwy.; beaches.lacounty.gov
