Little Dume Beach

Little Dume Beach is at a Tiny east-facing cove Nearby Point Dume in Malibu. It’s popular with surfers when circumstances are appropriate, but is merely a scenic shore walk below steep bluffs and multi-million dollar mansions. The only direct access to Little Dume is via a path that begins on Whitesands Place. Regrettably this gated access is private and only for the nearby residents. The good news is that the public section of the shore (i.e. below the mean high tide level) can be accessed by anybody prepared to wander from Paradise Cove Beach or from Big Dume Beach at Point Dume State Park. The land above Little Dume Beach is privately-owned and contains it’s own rules.

Big Dume Beach a.k.a. Dume Cove Beach is the main beach at Point Dume State Beach in Malibu, CA. Dume Cove’s crescent-shaped beach faces southeast from the east side of Point Dume. Access to the beach is via a walk across a small bluff-top natural conserve and down a long steep staircase. The trails in the preserve begin here and ascend to the high point above Point Dume, loop round the bluff, and also head right to Big Dume Beach. After you descend the stairway to the beach in Dume Cove you can walk east to Little Dume Beach and outside Paradise Cove. Along the road are excellent wave pools if you are here at lower tides. Due to the high vantage point, Point Dume is a popular whale watching spot during the gray whale migration February through April.

Guests of residents that are interested in finding the private gate, turn off Pacific Coast Highway on Zumirez Drive then instantly go directly onto Wildlife Drive. Follow this road to where it ends and loops back on what is named Whitesands Place. The unsigned wooden gate is at the approximate coordinates 34.01239, -118.79474 (based on Google Maps). Employing street-view on Google Maps you can locate the gate (we have supplied a photo to help identify it). Don’t disturb the adjacent homeowners trespass on any properties that are nearby.

Non-residents have to walk on the sand from adjoining beaches to visit Little Dume Beach. Both Point Dume and Paradise Cove are near by so people access is fairly easy, but you must pay to park at these locations.
