Malibu Point Dume travel photos

Point Dume Malibu, CaliforniaPoint Dume in Malibu, California is a very small place. It doesn’t really come up in conversations about California except for those who live in Southern California. Point Dume is a favorite place for locals especially in the winter months because it is right on the migration path for gray and blue whales as they travel north to Alaska. Between January and April, Point Dume is one of the few spots on the land where you can actually get to see some whales in addition to dolphins and other sea creatures.

We went to Point Dume on a very sunny January weekend in the hope to see some whales. We didn’t…but we had a great time. We got to see lots of dolphins playing around right by the shoreline, the kids enjoyed walking through the many tide pools and looking at all the star fish and other sea creatures.

How to get to Point Dume in Malibu, California

Point Dume is easily accessible from the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) or also called Highway 1. If you get to Malibu and then look for Zuma Beach, you will also see signs that will point you to Point Dume. There is a parking lot at the bottom of Point Dume, but we preferred driving up the hill and parking on the streets near the Point Dume park.
