About Nicholas Canyon County Beach in Malibu, California

Nicholas Canyon County Beach is a long beach in western Malibu that is run by Los Angeles County. Surfers call this beach Point Zero or Zeros for the waves that break on the boulder-strewn point below the parking lot where San Nicolas Canyon meets the shore. The sandy beach is north of this point. When you descend from the bluff there is a long paved path that is eroding away which leads to the center of the beach. During the summer months there is a lifeguard on hand and even a food truck during peak times. Picnic tables are available all over this park. The parking lot is just off Pacific Coast Highway about a mile south of Leo Carrillo State Park which has hiking trails and a campground. The three separate small pocket beaches of Robert Meyer Memorial State Beach are south of Nicolas Canyon County Beach.
