Guide to Malibu

A Saturday drive along the PCH, or Pacific Coast Highway, will inevitably lead the inner surfer or coastline junkie in you to the scenic mountains of Malibu. A celebrity hangout and homestead, Malibu is known for its captivating views and its two main beaches. It also gets recognition for the Malibu Creek State Park and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area that adorn its landscape. Visitors to this Southern California city are always at a premium. When talking surfing in Southern California, the first name off many people's lips is Malibu, particularly Surfrider Beach that sits on its shores. All manner of water equipment can be rented here. Whether you are a surf, kayak, or scuba enthusiast, whatever you need to dive right into your chosen sport can be found right on the beach for a reasonable price. Possibly more popular than Surfrider is Zuma located a short distance away where it is said that the surf is a little wilder and the beach seems to attract many more people on average. The riptides are fierce and the locals rule the roost as it were. Further down the shoreline are more, less traveled beach areas where you can go if seeking to get away from the throngs of people at the more populated spots. There is no shortage of fine homes, fine food, or decent hotels. Choosing where to go depends on your familiarity with the terrain and willingness to explore. World famous for the unique style of pottery that originated there, exhibits and museums highlighting Malibu's contribution to this art form are open to the public year round. More
