Malibu - Topanga State Beach
Topanga Beach Location - Topanga State Beach is located at 18700 Pacific Coast Highway just North of where Topanga Canyon Boulevard meets the sea at PCH. There is a small parking lot that you may enter into and pay to park or you can parallel park along PCH or Topanga Canyon Blvd. for free - just double check the street signs to make sure you are not parked during a Tow Away period. This quiet, little beach has quite a few rocks in sections which make it not as popular as beaches in Santa Monica or Zuma. It is adjacent to Lower Topanga Lagoon and some pricey Malibu homes. If you want to get wet and play in the ocean, bring your Tevas or other water shoes with solid bottoms to protect your feet from the rocks.

Beach Facilities - There are restrooms and showers available in the building on the beach. Because of the rocks on the beach, you will mostly find surfers, paddleboarders, kayakers, and sunbathers here. You can also fish here and Wylie's Bait and Tackle is just North of the beach, if you need to pick up some fishing gear and bait. There are no concession stands, however there is a restaurant, the Reel Inn, across the street - a little pricey, but you can get fish and chips, fish tacos, or chicken tacos for lunch. A little further North on PCH, there is a Thai restaurant, Cholada, also. While you are in the area, Topanga State Park is just a little bit off of PCH on Entrada Road. There are many trails to hike in the park.
