California is still caught in a cycle of persistent drought, but Malibu has had enough rainfall this winter for a bountiful crop of wildflowers, and in many of the area’s most easily accessible parks spring has already arrived in full force.
One of the most spectacular displays of spring wildflowers can be found at Point Dume State Beach, where the Point Dume Headlands and the bluffs along Westward Beach are golden with a mix of giant coreopsis — a flower found along the coast and nowhere else in the world — bush sunflower and California poppies.
