“state park at Malibu”
Point Mugu State Park, located in the Santa Monica Mountains, features five miles of ocean shoreline, with rocky bluffs, sandy beaches, sand dunes, rugged hills and uplands, two major river canyons and wide grassy valleys dotted with sycamores, oaks and a few native walnuts. There are more than 70 miles of hiking trails. The beach also features swimming, body surfing and surf fishing. The park includes the jagged pinnacles of the Boney Mountains State Wilderness Area.
This was the first stop on my fiancé and my epic road trip to Seattle. We were there just after a storm in September when the whole campground was flooded. Luckily it reopened right before our trip. The fire pits and picnic benches were brand new, and the porta pottys were clean. Not much of a swimming beach, there was tons of rocks and the shore incline was steep.
What more to ask from a walk!? Point Mugu State Park is simply majestic. You can walk at the sea shore while admiring the hierarchy of the mountains at the background.
This beach somehow feels like an open shell, overprotected by the tall mountains surrounding it. While walking, you can feel the breeze of the sea blowing through your face.
The beach was not very crowded when we went but it got full of families later on. The shore was full of kids playing and dogs running all around!!
