Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beach
As such, State Parks continues to ask visitors to plan ahead, avoid road trips and stay close to home, maintain physical distancing, wear a face covering when a physical distance of six feet from others who are not from the immediate household members cannot be maintained, and avoid congregating. This means no gatherings, picnics or parties. Visitors are being asked to leave if there are too many people to allow for the required physical distance. Full details on the guidelines are available at parks.ca.gov/FlattenTheCurve.
Here are some guidelines for people visiting Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beaches:
What is open now?
- Trails and parking lots, with limited capacity available to the public.
- Our El Matador, La Piedra, and El Pescador parking lots will be open from 8 a.m. to sunset to a limited capacity and we are only accepting payment by automated pay machines or our pay by phone app (https://www.passportparking.com). By using our app our guests will save $1 for all day parking. No cash transactions will be accepted.

Located between Leo Carrillo and Point Dume State Beaches, Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beach is made up of a number of cove or cliff-foot strands known as "pocket beaches" along the west end of the city of Malibu.
There are signs on Pacific Coast Highway with the names of the beaches: El Pescador, La Piedra and El Matador. Each of these three small beaches are a jewel unto themselves. These beaches can be crowded during the summer, however during the off season, they offer a perfect opportunity to experience solitude at its finest.
Limited parking is available at the bluff top with paths leading down to the beach.
The area is 10 miles west (upcoast) of Malibu on Highway 1.
