  • The only 'named' California beach accessway, it was named after the sun worshipper in Gary Trudeau's Doonesbury cartoon. It is located at the west end of Carbon Beach, a 'block's" walk east of Malibu pier. Carbon beach has but one other accessway, although there are several which might be opened save for litigation. Walking down coast from here exposes one to being trapped by the incoming tide because Carbon Beach is lined 'shoulder to shoulder' with imposing mansions. Street parking only. Metro bus stop. Fast food etc. across street.
