Considered a California County public beach, it is a 1 mile stretch of beach between two areas on PCH, Pacific Coast Highway – Puerco Canyon Road to the north and Corral Canyon Road to the south. Corral Canyon Beach is also sometimes referred to as Dan Blocker Beach to the east and Solstice Canyon to the west end. Latigo beach is to the west and Old Malibu Road to the east.
This beach is very popular with tourists and locals because it is so easily accessible. During the summer and holidays, you may not be able to get parking along side PCH unless you arrive early in the morning or late at night. You’ll find divers, surfers, and freedivers here because the underwater life is magnificent. Caution needs to be highly exercised like all beach dives due to strong surf and currents. When in doubt, don’t.
