If you're looking for the perfect place to pop the question or want to take your engagement photos at a unique location that is as picturesque as it is crowd-free or you simply want to get your feet wet in peace, download Our Malibu Beaches.
Our sister site Curbed LA reveals that the free mobile app (available for iTunes and Android) was founded in 2013 by "beach access expert" Jenny Price and features "entries for every potential beach access point along Malibu's coast"—at the dismay of locals. Offering everything from how to identity which "No Parking" signs are fake to where you can lay your towel out stress-free, Our Malibu Beaches is a brilliant discovery for beach bums who prefer to take the road less traveled.
