In this easygoing beach city that’s a favorite destination of many celebrities, there’s nothing to do but let loose and relax. Get ready to spend sunrise to sunset drinking cocktails while soaking in the natural beauty of the sea and the mountains in this laidback community locals call “The ‘Bu.”
At Malibu, a more than 21-mile strip of prime Pacific coastline, it’s fairly easy to lose track of time while spending a day in the warm, sunny beaches amongst surfers, locals, and Hollywood’s movers and shakers alike. But it’s not all sun, sand, and surf – world-class art museums, local wines, excellent restaurants and trendy shops exist as well.
Surrounded by Sea
If you love the ocean, then Malibu is definitely the place for you. With the sand between your toes, you can while away hours watching diving dolphins, swooping pelicans and crashing waves at some of the country’s best and most scenic beaches.
And if catching a wave is your kind of thing, the legendary Malibu Surfrider Beach patiently awaits you and your board. A longtime hotspot for many surfers, SurfriderBeach is a great location for anyone looking to tackle some great waves.
The Malibu Pier
Walk on a piece of Malibu history while enjoying the ocean breeze.
Originally built in 1905 and approximately 780 feet long, the Malibu Pier played a significant role in World War II history, where it served as a loading dock and was used as a lookout station for the U.S. Coast Guard. The pier, which has appeared in many TV shows and movies, is arguably the most recognizable landmark in Malibu. Go on an early morning run, watch the sun rise, and mingle with the fishermen while surfers paddle out to meet the waves in the distance. The Malibu Pier is one of those spots that offer an excellent view of the coastline.
Malibu Real Estate
A variety of real estate choices can be found in this sun-drenched coastline community. Options range from luxurious beachfront mansions, cliff-top Tuscan-style estates offering 360-degree ocean views, and plenty of secluded and serene single-family homes and condos.
