Peaceful and Private in Malibu
The beaches of affluent Malibu are more pristine than its urban counterparts. Public accessways lead to the private sandy beaches outside of oceanfront homes and public beaches like Point Dume and Zuma Beach often feel just as secluded. Surfriders Beach and Topanga Canyon State Park have some of the best surfing breaks in California and the mountains of Malibu have some of the best hiking trails. Pull over and park for a pit stop along the cliffs to simply enjoy the scenery of panoramic ocean views or the dishes of some of the best seafood restaurants in LA.
