Courtesy of ShutterstockMalibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It is known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach, which has a clean, wide patch of sand and surfing opportunities. This beach accommodates crowds with plenty of on-site parking and lifeguards on duty.
Zuma Beach Directly to the south, you will find Point Dume State Beach, with both hikers and climbers scaling its iconic namesake rock face and strolling through seasonal wildflower fields atop its crown. Point Dume State Beach features headlands, cliffs, rocky coves and vast beach access. The beach is presently operated by Los Angeles County, which also operates Zuma County Beach. These facilities are noted for swimming, surfing, scuba diving and fishing. Point Dume is a perfect place to watch for California gray whales during the December to mid April migration period.
Point Dume Beach To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. Nearby is the Spanish Revival-style Adamson House, with local history displays in its Malibu Lagoon Museum. Inland, trails weave through canyons, waterfalls and grasslands in the Santa Monica Mountains. Adamson House is a national historic site built in 1929. The home is small but full of unique touches like hand- carved doors, hand painted frescoes and beautifully crafted details in every room. The docent (only available for tours) happily shares the history of the home and the family that built it. While photography is not allowed inside you can photograph and roam the garden area.
Adamson House Malibu Small, beautiful and dominated by rocky outcrops, El Matador is easily the most picturesque piece of coastline in the county. Wear shoes and do not bring too much gear; the western Malibu beach is only accessible via a steep gravelly path from a paid parking lot. There are no lifeguards or other facilities, but it is the perfect spot to spread your towel in the cupped hands of the rocks—just watch out for high tide when sand comes at a premium. Arriving early or staying late should reward you with a memorable dawn or sunset.
El Matador Beach in Malibu The Escondido Falls trail is famous for the 150-foot fall, the tallest in the Santa Monica Mountains. However, because of the drought it is not likely you will find much water there during the hotter seasons but it is a fun hike and you can still get some great shots among the boulders.
Escondido Falls Malibu Malibu Creek State Park is a family friendly park with 15 miles of trails and a few swimming holes. It is also the site of TV shows including Planet of the Apes and M*A*S*H and you can still view some of the old cars from the set if you stay on Crags Road. Like Escondido Falls, the water level is low but the swimming holes are deep enough to dip into.
Horseback riding Zuma Canyon malibu Explore Malibu in a whole new way riding horseback through Zuma Canyon. The ride is an hour long and provides amazing views of the ocean. Go on a clear and sunny day to take full advantage of the scenery. Located in one of the most beautiful areas of Los Angeles, this ride takes you into the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, revealing breathtaking ocean views. On a clear day you may be able to spot multiple coastal Southern California islands (Catalina Island, Santa Barbara Island, and San Clemente Island). The trail goes through a beautiful forest-like canopy. In spring and summer, native wild flowers are abundant. A very relaxing and therapeutic ride!
Malibu beaches sunset If Malibu has one thing in spades it is natural beauty and nowhere is that more evident than the ocean. If you visit early in the morning when whales migrate (Dec.-Jan, April-May) you are likely to see a gray whale or two plus dolphin pods and seals. We suggest coming before 10:00am for whales but you will likely see dolphins and seals throughout the day.
