El Matador Beach
Precious 7's all time favorite place to soak up the sun is El Matador State Beach
If you don’t feel like going out of the LA hub and close surroundings, but want to enjoy a little beach time, our next gem is just for you.
Located between Leo Carrillo and Point Dume State Beaches, Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beach is made up of a number of cove or cliff-foot strands known as "pocket beaches" along the west end of the city of Malibu.
These beaches can be crowded during the summer, however during the off season, they offer a perfect opportunity to experience solitude at its finest.
Limited parking is available at the bluff top with paths leading down to the beach. And folks pay the $8 parking, it is worth every penny!
