The Point Mugu SUP Paddle starts at the Point Sand Dune at Point Mugu State Beach & navigates around Point Mugu Rock. This paddle is great for paddlers wanting the chance to paddle with dolphins & check out the rock icon from the ocean. Or, it’s just a great paddle for those paddlers craving a longer open ocean paddle that’s off the beaten path. Either way, the Point Mugu SUP paddle is a coastal open ocean paddle, so conditions & swell have a huge effect on the difficulty of the paddle.
This paddle is right off of the PCH. So, if you’re coming from the north or inland, take the 101 to hwy 1 (PCH) & continue you on it until you go past Point Mugu Rock to the Sand Dunes. If you’re coming from the south, just hop on the PCH & drive up past Malibu till you see the Sand Dunes.
Address for GPS: 9000 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Free parking is right off on the shoulders of the PCH.
Usually, it’s fairly easy to get parking here. Weekends during the summer could fill up though.
There is paid parking/camping at Thornhill Broome beach & Point Mugu State Park Campground. Their fees change pretty regularly. So, it’s probably just best to call them at (310) 457-8143.
As expected, there’s not a lot of facilities right off of the PCH. There are some public restrooms at the trailer campground down the beach, but its quite a walk. They also have showers there which are token operated & they only accept dollar bills for the tokens.
Cautions & Hazards
The main hazards are the conditions. As usual in surf conditions, the swell, wind, & currents can change quickly. Check them below before you go out & don’t be afraid to turn around part of the way through your paddle.
Please note: I had to use County Line/Yerba Buena Beach (Just south of Point Mugu) for the surf report since there’s no surf report for Point Mugu directly.
