The coastline along Malibu, CA is known for such wonderful beaches. One of my favorites is the El Matador State Beach, mainly because of this location’s view of a very beautiful sunset.
El Matador Beach is a very popular “pocket” beach among locals and even tourists, because of the rock formations and rock arches in this area. The shoreline is not as big and wide as the other beaches in Los Angeles, which is why it tends to get crowded here easily, especially during weekends. When I last visited it was Valentine’s Day, and there were two weddings going on at once!
Despite the busy vibe of this place during the day, it all seems to slow down come sunset. The calmer waves, and the gorgeous hues of the sky, turns this place into something peaceful and romantic.
When you come visit this place, I suggest to stay until nighttime to go stargazing. Nothing beats laying in the sand, hearing the waves crash in the shore, and counting numerous shooting stars.
