First on the list is Point Dume State Beach in Malibu. If you want unobstructed views of the sunset from any direction, this is the spot. One unique feature about Point Dume is that it is a bluff-lined point, and the views expand out into the Pacific Ocean. If you are heading there for photos, the views from the Northwest have excellent shots of Zuma Beach. If you are lucky, you may even find some dolphins playing in the water.
