This is a beautiful beach walk from Paradise Cove to Point Dume Nature Preserve at the northwest end of Santa Monica Bay. This is a great place for a sandy beach run, workout or long walk along southern California's scenic coastline. The Point Dume State Beaches and rocky coves are best accessed during LOW TIDE so check the tide charts before going. Keep an eye out for wildlife as this is a great area to spot grey whales during the December to mid April migration period. Visitors can also check out the tide pools on the east side of Point Dune. Please stay on all trails in the Point Dume Nature Preserve to help preserve the unique sand accumulation. There is a parking fee at the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe off the Pacific Coast Highway. Visitors might also be interested in nearby Malibu Lagoon State Beach. Check out Alltrails.com for other California beach walks.
