A really scenic beach with small coves at the base of short cliffs. We climbed all over the cliffs through large sea caves and went out on a large boulder in the water. We had such a good time. We would definitely recommend this beach.

We did a two night stay over. We loved the beach that most of the campground people go to. I personally enjoyed the hiking trails. It give you everything you need. Great place to bring your family.

Not to be missed at sunrise or sunset, Leo Carrillo is beautiful, with a wilder side than other beaches in Malibu. Well worth a visit, especially early in the morning or for a perfect sunset.

My family and I spent a night camping at Leo Carrillo State Park. The campsite we had was more than large enough to handle our 8 person tent. Each campsite has a fire ring and picnic table. This made it easy for us to roast...More

It is easily walkable from all of the campsites. You cross under Pacific Coast Highway to get there via a path from the beach daytime parking lot.
