There are 14 lifeguard towers throughout the beach all manned with lifeguards during the the sunlight parts of the day. Zuma can provide almost any beach activity including surfing, body surfing, boogie boarding, skim boarding, volleyball, fishing, swimming, and much more. Unfortunately there are no tide pools during the low tides. Dogs and alcohol are not permitted on the beach at any time. Amenities at Zuma include restrooms, showers, drinking fountains, volleyball nets, and concessions areas.
Warnings: Be careful when swimming in the ocean. Zuma is notorious for having very strong riptide that can pull swimmers out to sea. Although there are multiple lifeguards on duty, they cannot always see everything.
