Point Dume State Beach is located in Malibu. Not as crowded as many other Southern California beaches, it still offers views, swimming, surfing, tide pools to explore, and more. Parking is limited and no dogs are allowed on the path.
The beach may look familiar as several well known movies have been filmed here including Planet of the Apes, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Pearl Harbor, The Princess Diaries, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, and Iron Man to name a few.
A path at the end of the parking area takes you up onto the cliffs where you can continue on for a nice hike.
