DescriptionPoint Dume State Preserve features headlands, cliffs, rocky coves and vast beach access. The beach is presently operated by Los Angeles County, which also operates Zuma County Beach. These facilities are notable for swimming, surfing, scuba diving and fishing. Point Dume is a perfect place to watch for California gray whales during the December - March migration period.
Some disabled parking is available along Cliffside Drive, adjacent to the bluff-top park area. For viewing platform access, negotiating a slight grade will be necessary.
