Wide, sandy beach with various sandbar peaks; often very hollow and always powerful. Gets epic during offshore winds, funnelled by Trancas and Zuma canyons, and a peaky SW swell. Holds up to a foot or two overhead. Wicked currents and rips. Use caution.
A huge pay-parking lot borders the entire three-mile-plus stretch of beach. It's where all the Valley people come for their beach parties. Think Disneyland-by-the-Sea.
