Malibu is known for two things: 21 miles of beautiful, expansive beach and celebrity sightings. 

The "Bu," as it's called by local surfers, stretches across the coastline, framed by the Santa Monica Mountains behind it. Malibu's weather stays perfect and temperate all year, making it the ideal West Coast beach destination. Some of the area's more notable attractions include: 

  • The World Surfing Reserve at Surfrider beach
  • Hiking through California State Parkland
  • Arts and entertainment at the Getty Villa
  • Cycling along the Pacific Coast Highway 

Between its beautiful coastal range and the scenic vistas of the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu is one of the more striking neighborhoods in the Greater Los Angeles Area. And no beachfront visit would be complete without sampling some of the best food trucks, carts, and trailers in the city!
