There’s something for everyone at Malibu Lagoon State Beach: scenic trails, historic museums, salt water fishing at the pier and wildlife viewing. For water enthusiasts you’ll find some of the best waves at the world famous Surfrider Beach. Come low tide to explore tide pools or anytime for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and boating.
A leisure two-mile loop trail will take you around the lagoon, through tide pools and on to Malibu Pier. At the pier you’ll find beach equipment rentals, harbor tours, restaurants and a surf museum. Grab a bite at the pier or picnic on the beach. On the way back visit the Malibu Lagoon Museum or check out guided tours of the historic Adamson House.
Grant funding was provided for the pier and the newly restored lagoon. In addition, the City of Malibu completed a Stormwater project in 2011 to protect Santa Monica Bay from hazardous material spills and pollution.
Grant funding was provided for the construction of the Encanto Nature Trail, a 1,200 foot-long trail and viewpoint along the San Gabriel River.
