Malibu has 27 miles of coastline and at the very northern end on the Ventura County side hiding in front of the trees that line PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) at this point is Sycamore Cove Beach (Point Mugu State Park). This is a beach that should be kept hidden and secret from all but those that know about it, but then it is one of the few beaches that allow canned beer and plastic containers of alcohol on the sand. Sycamore Cove is also one of the few beaches with not only restrooms but fire pits and picnic tables under the trees on the sand. A great family beach.

Across PCH, on the mountain side are 50 camp sites for overnight camping. Back on the beach side, you can see many dolphins swimming in the ocean, right from a picnic table. The shade of the trees come in handy on the sunny, warm days. Yes, this is part of California's treasures and we must make sure that it is available to all, always.

Address: 9000 W. Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu
Directions: About 16 miles north on PCH from the Malibu Pier.
