Whether you pitch your tent right on the beach or head up into the rustic beauty of the mountains, you can't go wrong when it comes to camping near Santa Monica. At Leo Carrillo State Beach, listen to the waves washing in as you fall asleep, or hike away from the ocean to enjoy basic amenities under the shade of giant sycamore trees. Indulge yourself in a cozy bed when you book a stay at Zuma Sanctuary, just a stroll from the Pacific. Heading up into the Santa Monica Mountains gives you the possibility of spectacular views, including a sight of the trendy Santa Monica shoreline and the vast expanse of the Pacific. Try tent or RV camping in the rustic hills of Malibu Creek State Park, or enjoy glamping in a luxurious tipi next to a hot tub with your complementary bottle of wine. It's the perfect way to relax before hitting the equestrian and mountain biking trails in the morning. Topanga Canyon is a haven for those seeking a cleansing sense of serenity, and you can commit to wellness with a healing escape at the Magical Topanga Oasis, or rough it under eucalyptus trees in Topanga State Park.

Any sand below the high tide line is open to the public, so private beaches in Malibu are often more accessible to the public than they appear.
