Great For: Swimming. Over 40 miles of coast hug the base of the Santa Monica Mountains, but natives know to take the Pacific Coast Highway straight to Zuma for mellow swells and two miles of sizzling sand.

T+L Tip: The area has 2,025 parking spaces, but be sure to arrive by 10:30 a.m.—come noon, the lots are full.
