Laidback Surf Town and Posh SoCal Enclave

Perched on the Pacific Ocean about 30 miles west of Los Angeles—only an hour’s drive from Hollywood—Malibu feels a world away. From its humble origins as a laid-back surfing community to its modern-day reputation as a glitzy hideaway for the Hollywood elite, Malibu entices SoCal travelers with a flavor all its own. Dine at casual seafood eateries, stroll the beach beneath a starry sky, or visit landmarks like the Malibu Pier and Getty Villa—a museum that’s a replica of a Roman seaside home, featuring Greek and Roman art. No visit to Malibu would be complete without sinking your toes in the world-famous sands of El Matador State Beach, marked by 300-foot-tall red clay rock formations that rise dramatically out of the Pacific Ocean.

Destination Highlights

  • The Getty Villa

    In 1954, oil tycoon J. Paul Getty built an elaborate recreation of a Roman-style country home as his private art gallery. Today, it’s a public art museum that houses priceless ancient Greek and Roman art, surrounded by intricate Italian-style gardens.

  • El Matador State Beach

    Malibu’s most recognizable landmark, this beach is home to 300-foot-tall red clay rock formations that have been battered and sculpted by the sea. When the tide is out, you can explore seaside caves and tidepools.

  • Zuma Beach

    Enjoy white, powdery sands that extend for nearly 2 miles at this quintessential Malibu beach, home to volleyball courts, surfers, and the occasional pod of dolphins swimming along the coast. It’s the perfect spot to catch an incredible West Coast sunset.



  • Forecasting your Malibu Vacation

    Malibu enjoys a warm and pleasant temperature year-round, with highs in the upper 60s in the winter months and mid- to upper 80s in the summer. A cool breeze off the Pacific Ocean ensures it never gets too warm, even in July and August. December through March are the rainiest months, with an average of four to five days of precipitation per month.
