Welcome to Malibu
Malibu is an oceanside oasis just outside of Los Angeles that offers the best of both worlds in every sense. Just a (breathtaking and scenic) 25-minute drive from the City of Angels, the affluent area is nestled between the Santa Monica Mountains and the gorgeous waters of the Pacific Ocean. Here, you don’t have to choose a favorite view; you can enjoy a sunset stroll down one of Malibu’s iconic, sandy beaches (there’s 20) or a hike inland through some of the country’s most beautiful trails and canyons (some even lead to towering waterfalls). The natural world is at your fingertips, as are an award-winning array of restaurants and shops. From locally owned boutiques to tiny cafes perched on piers, what really gives Malibu its hometown feel is its close-knit community. The homes are massive and majestic, and neighbors are respectful yet friendly. You can hop on the legendary Pacific Coast Highway (which runs right through town) to take a carefree road trip, but in Malibu, there’s no place like home.
