El Pescador Beach

7 06 2012

I had company in from out of town, and they wanted to spend some time on a secluded beach with tide pools, so I took them out to El Pescador. It’s on the north end of Malibu, so it’s out of the way of most beach people and tourists.

We took Decker Canyon over the mountains, so we could find four caches on the way:

The weather was warm and breezy.

My guests had the beach to themselves.

I spent about an hour there with them, observing the various forms of wildlife. The rocks are home to starfish, assorted clams, barnacles, and seaweed.

Crabs in the crevices:

This is a classic ocean view.

These houses overlook said view.

Enjoy the waves!
