Point Dume in Malibu is a great location for many different types of fish. There are calico bass, white sea bass, halibut, lobster and many other sea creatures. Also from about December to March grey whales can be seem migrating. It is quite an awesome sight if you happen to catch it.
Access is available on Cliffside Drive, but parking is very limited. Police are known to patrol the area so I advise not to park illegally. The beach is protected by the Lifeguard unit of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Parking is also available on the street of Grasswood, a short walk away.
Sunrise to Sunset
From Santa Monica follow Pacific Coast Highway 18-miles west to Westward Beach Road. Turn toward the ocean, go beyond the fee collection station to the very end of the road.
From the 101-Freeway, exit at Kanan Road, follow it south 12-miles to Pacific Coast Highway, then turn right. Westward Beach Road is over the rise, at the foot of the hill.
