El Matador State Beach
The farther north from Los Angeles – the more atmospheric beaches. El Matador is located about sixteen kilometers north of Malibu, the rocks and small caves make this place completely unique. You need to come there early to take the best places to watch the sunset, because there will be a lot of loving couples who want to do it.
Those who get there in the evening will see the sun in the Pacific Ocean. However, the beach is not so deserted. Newlyweds like to come there to take photos on the background of this beauty. Visiting and leaving the beach is not simple – you must go up a steep staircase consisting of 86 steps.

The name speaks for itself. From early morning, surfers rush in here. They put on special costumes and go into the water, some straight from the pier, while others walk several hundred meters to the north on foot to catch the best waves.
Surfrider Beach is also popular among meditators, and those who walk on the beach only in the morning. They know each other, greet each other, and talk with each other.

Many people go home for a couple of hours and then return to the beach again.
