Fall in love at the seaside in Malibu.
Getting to Malibu’s six beaches, sunbathed coast, or illustrious university takes effort when you’re coming from the core of LA, but the journey is worth it. Evidence of this small-town’s nonpareil respect for nature is everywhere.
Malibu’s celebrities, surfers, and students bask in its proximity to both the coast and the Santa Monica Mountains. Board, bike, and engage in the ‘Bu’s favorite community pastimes — judging chilicookoffs, pre-screening films at festivals, and fundraising for local organizations.
Malibu is a city in Los Angeles County in the US state of California, United States.
Known for its mediterranean climate, a 21-mile (34 km) strip of the Malibu coast incorporated in 1991 into the City of Malibu. The area is known as Surf City and for being the home of Hollywood movie stars, people in the entertainment industry, and other affluent residents. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 12,645. Signs around the city proclaim “27 miles of scenic beauty”, referring to the historical 27-mile (43 km) Malibu coast spanning from Tuna Canyon west to Point Mugu in Ventura County.
Most Malibu residents live within a few hundred yards of Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1), which traverses the city, with some residents living up to a mile away from the beach up narrow canyons. For many residents of the unincorporated canyon areas, Malibu has the closest commercial centers and have mail delivered using the Malibu zip codes. The city is also bounded by Topanga to the east, the Santa Monica Mountains (Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Woodland Hills) to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the south, and Ventura County to the west.
