DescriptionMalibu Lagoon State Beach features 22 acres of wetlands, flower gardens and sandy beach. The lagoon is where Malibu Creek meets the sea. Malibu Surfrider Beach has a long standing as a premier surfing beach.
On the east side of Malibu Creek Bridge, Malibu Pier allows for excellent saltwater fishing. On the west side of Malibu Creek Bridge, visitors will find picnic tables and a nature area, excellent for bird watching and studying that greatly diminished ecosystem; the saltwater marsh of Southern California.
Guided tours of the wetlands and other natural elements such as grunion, the monarch butterfly, tidepools, and the gray whale are scheduled seasonally. Cultural history tours of Chumash life and other early Malibu residents, the railroad and more, are also offered.
