Malibu Beach is located off William T. Morrissey Blvd in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The east’s Malibu Beach will not offer an endless view of an ocean; instead it offers a view of Dorchester Bay Basin, a pleasant city view and the largest piece of Copyrighted Work of Art in the United States by Corita Kent on the National Grid gas tank. Sand can be limited at certain parts of the beach during high-tide although there is plenty of space including grass to sit on; trees offer a break from the sun and benches are throughout the park. The bathhouse and grounds are new, and the park and walk area around the beach is well lit for night-time walks. Popular with locals and college students, Malibu Beach is a great place to relax, run, walk, and enjoy the day any time of year.
