Map and Information: Malibu Bluffs Open Space

Bluffs

Overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean, the 84-acre Malibu Bluffs Open Space provides spectacular ocean views both up and down the coast, as well as views of the Santa Monica Mountains. A network of trails are ideal for jogging, hiking, and wildlife viewing amongst the coastal sage scrub, southern willow scrub, and open grasslands. Some trails lead from the bluffs downhill to Malibu Canyon Road with access to the wet sand on the beach.

Malibu Bluffs Open Space is adjacent to, and west of, the City of Malibu-owned Malibu Bluffs Park. The City-owned park includes parking, baseball diamonds, and the Michael Landon Community Building, which provides restrooms and drinking fountains.

Public transportation is available via MTA bus. Future plans include a campground area.
