Choose a Malibu Beach House for the Perfect Getaway

This Los Angeles county beach town is home to some of the world’s brightest stars. Treat yourself to the celebrity experience in California with a stay in a Malibu beach house and discover for yourself why the area has become one of the country’s most sought-after zip codes.
Getting to your Malibu beach house and starting your vacation
If you are traveling from some distance, the easiest way to reach Malibu is by flying into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). As one of the country’s major airports, it is serviced by all of the main airlines in North America and runs daily or multi-daily services to cities across the United States and Canada. Renting a vehicle at LAX is probably the easiest way to get to your Malibu’s beach house. From LAX, Malibu is about a 30-minute drive, depending on traffic, and visitors to Malibu will appreciate having a car for easy travel between beaches, hiking spots and restaurants.
Paradise Found in Malibu
This part of California is famous worldwide for good reason; the climate lends itself perfectly to the beach activities that it is renowned for. Officially, Malibu has what is known as a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, which means that it experiences pleasantly warm temperatures year-round with little precipitation – ideal for travelers looking to make the most of the outdoors during their stay in in Malibu.
Enjoying the Natural Wonders of Malibu
Malibu is known for some of the best beaches in California, if not the world. During your vacation in the area, there are several spots both on the coast and inland that are not to be missed.
For first-time and experienced surfers alike, there is no destination quite as ideal as the aptly named Surfrider Beach. Located where the mountains touch the sea, the beach has become a hotspot for surfers from around the world. It has been officially named the first World Surfing Reserve and is known for some of the best surfing waves on the planet. Surf schools are plentiful in the area for those needing to brush up on their skills and the beach is also a great spot for those who prefer to stay on shore and picnic, bird watch or fish.
Another popular beach in Malibu is Zuma Beach, which is also ideal for surfing in addition to rock climbing, swimming, or just relaxing in the sun with a good book. With lifeguards on duty, Zuma Beach is also a popular spot for families and will often be covered in impressive sandcastles by the end of the day!
As difficult as it is to part with Malibu’s perfect beaches, the town also offers quick access to inland landscapes built for hiking, biking, and climbing. A short drive inland from Malibu is the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which offers great hiking through lush canyons and rock climbing on the unique formations.
For a more urban excursion, a visit to the iconic Malibu Pier is fun for adults and children alike. Located just adjacent to Surfrider Beach, the pier is a historic landmark in the area where visitors can book a coastal harbor tour, buy local culinary products to enjoy in the comfort of your Malibu beach house or enjoy a fine meal while watching the sunset.
Special Events in Malibu
With the perfect climate and picturesque beaches, Malibu is a special place all year round. However, the bustling beach community also plays host to annual events and festivals that appeal to travelers and shouldn't be missed while staying in Malibu vacation rentals.
Due to its proximity to Hollywood, it is perhaps unsurprising that Malibu has its own International Film Festival that is held each year and showcases some of the best new talent in filmmaking from around the world. The town also shows its artistic side with its Arts Festival that takes place in July. For the more actively inclined, the Malibu International Marathon is a scenic race held in November. Notable additions to the marathon week include a kids’ fun run and a Stand Up Paddle Boarding race for those who love the water.
