Leo Carrillo Dog Beach. SoCal Dog lovers & their beasts are permitted at Thornhill Broome Beach at Point Mugu & one marked area of Leo Carrillo State Beach. The popular Leo Carrillo Campground usually books up year round, due to the proximity to Los Angeles, so it's best to make campground reservations.

  • description:
    27 miles of Southern California coastal beauty. Surf spots, restaurants, big mansions with epic views, on steep hills, rugged canyons. Basically Malibu is the steep, expensive beach front. Numerous movie stars call Malibu home, gates and long drive ways are abundant. Pepperdine University graces the southern end of Malibu, above the Pacific ocean. Nice, yet expensive edu.
