Point Dume Bluffs / Headlands @ Point Dume State Preserve – CFC

Winding Way, Malibu, Los Angeles County, California, 90265, United States


Point Dume Natural Preserve and State Beach is a scenic point that juts
out into the ocean just north of Santa Monica Bay. It is one of the last remaining
open coastal terraces and bluffs in southern California. The Point is a day-use
area with two miles of trails and a staircase descending steeply to access the
beach and intertidal zones below. An accessible trail is located from the top of
the point. Limited parking, including accessible sites, is located on the top of the
point. Additional parking is available at Westward Beach part of Zuma County
Beach below the point on the northwest side.
The Natural Preserve includes 32 acres of native plant and animal habitat.
While walking the trail, visitors may see roadrunners, coyotes, quail, warblers,
brown pelicans, and many other bird species. The trail intersects stands of giant
coreopsis, a unique flowering plant at its southern-most limit. Another special
plant at its southern-most limit is Dudleya caespitosa, a succulent-type plant.
Beach sand verbena, bush sunflower, lemonade berry and other beach
community plants can also be found in this small but diverse natural preserve.
Many marine mammals, including migrating whales, seals and sea lions, can be
spotted from the point due to the fact that it juts out into the channel.
Point Dume is a promontory on the coast of Malibu, California that juts out into the Pacific Ocean.

Point Dume, a long bluff, forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay, and Point Dume Headlands Park affords a vista of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and Santa Catalina Island. Zuma Beach lies to its immediate northwest.
