Getting There

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).

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.

Local Attractions

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.

Local Events
