Salt Creek Beach in Orange County is also terrific. You have the option of enjoying the surf and sand or having a picnic on the hillside with a panoramic ocean view.

But I don't know why Santa Barbara isn't on the list.

each of these counties has it's great and not-so-great beaches. Malibu and La Jolla are probably the prettiest, OC has the best surfing, and Ventura has the least crowded. IMHO, it's too tough to pick a favorite at the county level.
