Things to do in Malibu
Malibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It’s known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach. To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. So if you're heading that way stop at some of these iconic places.
1. Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
Hidden in plain sight from Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Mountains offer easy access to surprisingly wild places. Experience the famous beaches of Malibu or explore more than 500 miles of trails. What will you and your family discover?
2. Zuma Beach
Zuma Beach is a county beach located at the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California. One of the largest and most popular beaches in California. Zuma is known for its long, wide sands and excellent surf. So if you're feeling ready to let loose and hang ten, this beach is the surf spot of your dreams.
Solstice Canyon features several options for easy, moderate, or strenuous hikes through coastal sage scrub and riparian plant communities. Visitors can enjoy a picnic, a shady stroll along the Solstice Canyon Trail, or a more challenging climb up the Rising Sun Trail. The perennial waterfall is a popular hiking destination, and along the way you might encounter acorn woodpeckers, alligator lizards, fence lizards, or a red-tailed hawk soaring overhead but wildfires have left behind the architectural ruins of our recent past.
4. Malibu Pier
The Malibu Pier forms the eastern boundary of the worlds first surf reserve and has been witness to the sport from its earliest days practised by a few trespassers who snuck in to Rancho Malibu to the days of Gidget trading sandwiches for surf lessons and on through the free styling of the 80's through to the revival of long boarding we see today.
5. Malibu Wine Safari
