Carbon Beach

Malibu, California
Mis à jour par LA Waterkeeper

Aka “Billionaires Beach”, is one of the widest and nicest of the eastern Malibu beaches. Carbon Beach extends from Malibu Pier to Carbon Canyon Road, about a mile and a half. There are over 70 private residences lining the beach shoulder to shoulder, including the homes of many major movie stars. There is even a rock called “Deal Makers Rock” where studio heads meet every morning to walk and make their deals. Carbon Beach is a crescent shaped beach tapering to shallow lots at each end, the best lots with the most sand are near the center of the arch. There are only two public accesses to the sand. The first, located at 22706 PCH, is known as the “Zonker Harris” gate after the Doonsbury character. The second access is at 22132 PCH next to David Geffen’s house. By design, on street parking is extremely limited, another option is to park at the Malibu Pier and walk east at low tide. Activities include swimming, surfing, scuba diving, paddle boarding, and catching some rays. No facilities.

Beach water is tested either once a week or 5 days a week by the City of Los Angeles Environmental Monitoring Division (EMD), County of Los Angeles Department of Health Services (LACDHS), and Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County (LACSD). Freshwater swimming holes, falls and creeks are tested by Council for Watershed Health (CWH) approximately once a week in the summer.

Sample results are emailed from EMD and CWH to LA Waterkeeper, who updates the swim status and information in Swim Guide.

In California, maximum levels for bacteria are established for recreational open beach waters. Single sample maximum levels are 104 Enterococcus /100 ml; and 400 fecal coliform/100 ml; and 10,000 total coliform /100 ml. In waters designated for contact recreation, the median fecal coliform density based on the five most recent samples for any 30-day period shall not exceed 200/100 ml, Fecal and Enterococci density shall not exceed 35/100 ml. Monitoring frequency varies across jurisdictions, most popular beaches are often monitored 5 days a week.

In Los Angeles County bacteriological objectives for freshwater recreation are based on e.coli density. The 30 day geometric mean e.coli density shall not exceed 126/100ml and a single sample limit not to exceed 235/100ml.

Swimmers are advised not to swim within 100 feet of a flowing storm drain. Swimmers are also advised to stay out of the water for 72 hours following a rain event in the area.
