EL MATADOR BEACH, MALIBU, CALIFORNIA
In the far reaches of Malibu, past better-known Zuma and its surfer wannabes, sits this near-secret slice of boulder-strewn seafront heaven reached down a steep gravelly path.
Rub suntanned elbows with: Film crews re-creating the perfect make-out session in the sand; golden-haired couples living out the real thing.
Best way to cool off: Dude, grab a beer from the cooler and chill out.
Beach chic: Quiksilver flip-flops and an ineffable surfer cool.
Where to bed down: If only the nearby Getty Villa were a hotel. Until the family can be convinced, head for the Malibu Beach Inn, a small property with tropical decor and balconies over the beach—ideal for a tryst.
