“Crystal Cove is my favorite beach in California,” said junior Brittani Clinite. “It is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and I love to go there when I need a day of pure relaxation.”
When visiting Crystal Cove, the diverse tide pools and caves will make the day unforgettable. Beautiful sea creatures of all different colors inhabit the tide pools and make Crystal Cove’s caves more than “Instagram worthy.” The caves are filled with water that you can swim in while looking over the entire beach. Also, the large rocks on the beach serve as the perfect diving boards to jump off of into the clear blue ocean water.
“I would love to go to Crystal Cove with my boyfriend,” said junior Madison Marer. “During the holidays the beaches in Malibu are always crowded so we are always looking for a new place to visit.”
The Southern California sun does not cease to shine during the winter. Spend a day at Crystal Cove this holiday season; once you visit this beautiful hotspot, Zuma will never be the same!
