Broad Beach is a long narrow public beach in front of beautiful Malibu homes. Bulkheads, rock piles, and other methods are being employed to protect these homes from beach erosion. At higher tides and during the winter there is no dry sand to walk on. At lower tides in the summer, the locals will enjoy this spot and with the gradually sloping beach, it is excellent for walking barefoot in the surf. There are tide pools at the north end at the point that separates Broad Beach from Lechuza Beach. Surfers, bodyboarders, and windsurfers head to Broad Beach when conditions are favorable.
