Location: Zuma Beach, Malibu
Zuma Beach is a county beach located on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Malibu, California. One of the largest and most popular beaches in Los Angeles County, Zuma is known for its long, wide sands and excellent surf. It consistently ranks among the healthiest beaches for clean water conditions in Los Angeles County. On its southwest side, Zuma is bordered by Westward Beach. Westward is geographically situated on Malibu’s westernmost promontory known as Point Dume.
With its proximity to the film and television industry in Los Angeles, Zuma Beach has been a popular filming location. It was a frequently used site for the television series Baywatch as well as numerous films, tv episodes, and advertisements. The beach substitutes for “a deserted island in the South Pacific” when Larry Hagman discovers Barbara Eden (in the very first episode of the classic sitcom I Dream of Jeannie (1965–70). Westward Beach has been used for innumerable projects for decades. Planet of the Apes’s famous final scene was filmed near here (on the cliff face of Point Dume). Countless advertisements, both film and print, that require beach scenes are shots of Westward Beach. The Beach was also used as a location in episode 12 of Season 1 of Scorpion.
Zuma is located right down the PCH from Pepperdine University, so it’s the popular place to go for the students.
