About Bass Rock Beach in Malibu, California

Bass Rock Beach is at a signed but unnamed coastal access along Pacific Coast Highway not far from the Ventura and Los Angeles County border. The state has provided a concrete stairway that leads from a strip of shoulder parking on PCH to the sandy beach below. Erosion has undercut the base of the stairs so you have to jump or climb down on the rocks at the bottom. Waves crash on large rocks at both ends of the beach. The rock just offshore at the south end is officially named Bass Rock and the area around it is a known surf casting fishing spot. At low tides there are tide pools exposed here. Since this beach is right off the busy highway, it’s not much of a destination, but it makes a nice stopping point along this scenic drive.
