El Sol Beach is a public beach in Malibu that is owned by Los Angeles County. Access to this beach has been a topic of conversation since it was purchased by the county in 1976. Wealthy land owners (especially Michael Eisner of Disney fame) have opposed construction of a public stairway every time that funds have been allocated to the project. That has earned El Sol Beach the nickname “Disney Overlook” by the Our Malibu Beaches mobile app creators.

Currently there is no parking lot and no direct access to this beach which is below a driveway with the address of 33550 Pacific Coast Highway in Western Malibu. You can still get here by walking east from Nicholas Canyon County Beach or west from El Pescador State Beach. Both routes are rocky and best traveled at low tides. It’s worth the effort to get here as you will likely have this sandy beach all to yourself. Let’s hope the state or county finally provides access to this excellent scenic beach soon.
