El Matador State Beach

Malibu, California

This ruggedly handsome beach is probably just as photogenic as the swimsuit models who are often found posing on its sleek stretches of sand. You might be tempted to stage your own photo shoot or join the body surfers who’ve made this beach one of their favorite hangouts. If you plan to make the trip, keep your eyes peeled for the sandy hideaway off the Pacific Coast Highway and be aware of the steep 150-foot hike from its upper cliffs down to the beach.
