Malibu Surfer Beach

Malibu is known for its exemplary landscapes. Be its hiking trails or the pretty beaches, Malibu is a perfect blend of the seas and the mountains. This is where the Malibu Surfrider beach stands – the place for surfers and surfing. Most of the movies that picture surfing have the Malibu Surfrider beach on the top of their list. 

Apart from surfing, you could go for swimming, fishing or enjoy a peaceful lunch from the Malibu pier. Be it a family outing or a solo surfing trip, Malibu doesn’t disappoint. 

Tourist Attractions

Malibu Pier

The Malibu Pier is the closest attraction to the Surfrider beach, from where you can enjoy a peaceful vacation by watching the surfers, fishing or simply enjoy spotting the dolphins. The food served here is organic and comes directly from the Malibu Farms!

Adamson House Museum

Once a beach house that was converted to a museum, there is no better place to know the history of the Malibu culture other than here.

The museum treats you with excellent craftsmanship in almost everywhere you turn – be it the painted windows or the hand-carved doors, the dazzling frescoes or ceilings with impressive art, or the decorative ceramic tile art. An excellent work of art on display, which you shouldn’t miss if you are visiting Malibu. 

Malibu Bluffs Park

The Malibu Bluffs Park is perfect for a team outing. With their baseball courts, soccer fields, picnic areas and playgrounds, there is no reason you can find for not indulging in a sport, if you want to. There is also a whale watching region inside the park!

Malibu Creek State Park

If you have some extra time to spare, you could spend some time at the Malibu State Creek park. Activities such as fishing, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, bird watching, and horseback riding are most common in the State Park.

It covers most of the Santa Monica mountains which gives you excellent views of the mountain as well as the Malibu Lagoons during your hike up the hills.
