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. There are signs on Pacific Coast Highway with the names of the beaches: El Pescador, La Piedra and El Matador. Each of these three small beaches are a jewel unto themselves. 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 blufftop with paths leading down to the beach.

Loved El Matador Beach. It’s truly beautiful. Went just before the new year in December and there was a thick marine layer into the afternoon. Didn’t make it all the way up the beach because I got cold but will go again better prepared. Like many beaches along the Pacific it could benefit from more frequent clean up efforts. Plan to get your feet wet.

Very beautiful place. Nice easy hike.

It's a good walk on the beach you'll see sea urchins,and other sea life. Different kinds of birds.and just a great ocean view.

beautiful views a little tuff going up if your out of shape but worth it

Great view of the beach. Not a hike but very nice for a walk and finding seashells

Be ready to get wet! It was high tide and the waves were strong but totally worth it. Rock formations that are fun to climb. Will definitely go back soon

Great for an easy walk. Lots to see. Lots of interesting rock formations.

Not a hike unless you can't the few hundred feet going down the mountainside to get to the beach a hike... Very beautiful though. It was worth setting some time aside to go and visit! I love the rock formations right on the beachside!

Very beautiful! Not really a hike... just a good place to walk around. Lots of sandfleas, but well worth the views... you can crawl through some little caves but don't do it in between low and high tides or you'll get stuck on the other side!

Since its a beach it's not exactly a hike, but this is an absolutely beautiful place to spend a few hours wandering around along the coast. Amazing rock formations and some tide pools. Watched the sunset and relaxed. Highly recommended!
