Located in northwest Los Angeles, Malibu is an affluent seaside community, with vacation rentals scattered along the coast, enveloped by California state parkland.
With over 32 kilometres of coastline and a number of beaches, popular activities in Malibu include sunbathing, swimming, and surfing, as well as deep-sea fishing from the Malibu Pier, a prominent local attraction and Southern Californian landmark. The hills behind Malibu afford different views of the Santa Monica Mountains, the Santa Monica Bay, the San Fernando Valley and Santa Catalina Island, and provide extensive hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding options. The Malibu Lagoon State Beach is a favourite spot for bird watching.
On a rainy day, check out the Getty Villa, the historic Adamson House, and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, or head to the unique shops, galleries, and restaurants at Malibu Country Mart and Malibu Colony Plaza. Due to its location at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu is also home to easily accessible local vineyards and boutique wineries. The Sunday Farmers’ Market is a favourite with residents and visitors alike.
Malibu offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is less than an hour’s drive from Los Angeles and its International Airport.+ More
