Earlier this summer in July, I ventured to El Matador State Beach in Malibu with some friends for a much-needed beach day. Located deep in Malibu, about an hour from most places west of Hollywood, El Matatador State Beach is known for its exquisite rock formations, and additionally, is a popular hotspot for photoshoots (wedding photos, anyone?). The commute, as mentioned, may be longer than expected, however driving along the Pacific Coast Highway is a great introduction to the endless beauty that defines the “Malibu Mystique.”
If you have time on a Saturday or a Sunday, and have a thirst for LA’s beaches, I highly recommend El Matador for a relaxing and fun beach day.
Until next time my travel junkies!
